Light, Frankincense & Myrrh

For many people in the UK mid winter is a time to celebrate Christmas, but midwinter festivals have been a feature of almost every culture throughout history and prehistory, for the Romans it was Saturnalia. Many of these ancient festivals feature, light, fire and incense, so what better way to celebrate this time of year, whatever you may call it or whatever your beliefs, than to create your own oil lamps, candle holders or incense burners.
Using ancient craft skills, moulds and templates, Graham will show you how to make your own heritage pieces of pottery with a creative twist. Your items will be fired and returned to you in time for Christmas.


This workshop will take place at Vindolanda and includes admission to the site. It is a half day workshop of 2 hours, with both Morning and afternoon sessions: 10am to 12noon and 1pm to 3pm.
