About the Event
With special thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund we are delighted to bring you this programme of fantastic, Ancient Roman inspired wax tablet making workshops.
Take part in one of our fabulous Ancient Roman inspired wax tablet workshop where you will learn about the Roman technique of creating your own wax tablet from scratch. Working with pre-cut wood, you will assemble your board using a range of materials to create a base, in which you will pour your wax. Our tutor will be on hand to explain the melting process of the soy wax and provide you with the relevant information on why soy wax is being used during the session, whilst also discussing what the Romans would have used during that era.
During the session we will be using soy wax as opposed to bees wax, as it is biodegradable and more environmentally friendly. We have opted to do this, as a focal point of this project is sustainability.
You will NOT be able to take items home with you after the session has ended. All items are to be displayed in our exhibition.
You must be aged 16+ to take part.
