Bring your family on a journey to explore the colours of the past and design a magnificent mask inspired by objects from the Museum in this free, drop-in event.

Choose a topic from ancient Egypt, the Aztecs, ancient Greece, Persia, Peru or Japan.

Learn about the objects, then use tablets to create your own striking design, using colours to convey your personality.

You can then print your finished mask to take home and wear.
