Full house for children's workshop on medieval writing (Science Festival)

(14-11-2019) The institute teaches children about medieval writing

For the occasion of the Flemish Science Day and the WOOOW Science Festival at Ghent University (Sunday 24 November), our Institute welcomed no less than 22 children for a workshop on medieval writing. In a fun mix between education and crafts, the children learned about medieval parchment, letters, wax seals and writing utensils. Afterwards, they produced a medieval manuscript of their own.

Special thanks to the children and educators of the Multifunctional Centre St Gregory of Gentbrugge for joining the group and making it such a good experience! A big shout out to the colleagues who helped with the workshop!
