A fantastic family drop in cartoon session for budding illustrators of all ages (and everyone else).  

Join us to use cartooning to bring Roman objects in the museum to life by giving them human characteristics. 

What would a Roman sponge on a stick look like if it were a person? What would a helmet say? What would an ornate belt-buckle look like?

Some work may be even selected to be included in our forthcoming Borderline Funny exhibition in May.
