Egyptian Cartouche Painting Workshop

In the early days of ancient Egypt, Kings and important people, encircled their name (written in hieroglyphics) with a design that we now call a cartouche.

This cartouche was an oval circle and looked rather like a nameplate. Around the design was a picture of a rope, tied at one end protecting everything inside.

Our Egyptian Cartouche Painting Workshop is a unique way to study ancient Egypt.

The workshop caters for between 50 and 200 children per day with every child having the chance to paint their name in hieroglyphics on their own cartouche. Our artist sets up a mobile studio in your school and provides specialist child-friendly materials.
