Amulet Workshop

Amulets have had a special place in Middle and Near East cultures. They are connected to people’s wish to influence supernatural powers. Amulets were carried primarily for their protective powers.

Participants in the Amulet Workshop visit amulets on display in the various Museum collections before making their own small amulets from reclaimed materials.

Workshop fee: €15 per person. The workshop is intended for 4–15 people.
