Would you like the chance to try something a bit different? Are you interested in ancient art and archaeology?


Chelmsford Museum will be offering people the chance to try out different hobbies including archaeology and pottery, in a series of taster sessions that are taking place until July 16th.


Christopher Kingsley, Chelmsford councillor who is responsible for parks and heritage, said: “This is a wonderful opportunity to get creative with help from experienced local artists.


“Everybody who takes part will be able to make something to keep as a souvenir of the day as they learn the artistic techniques involved.”


After the art lessons, a team of diggers from the Colchester Archaeological Society and Heritage Writtle will be at the museum to conduct a day of activities in Oaklands Park.


Diggers will be able to see a Second World War mortar which fell on the park and children will be able to make a Roman-style oil lamp and tile.


Entrance to the days cost £2.50 for Make it at the Museum and £2 for the archaeology day.
