The Origins Centre Museum will host an illustrated talk on the Origins Beads by Severa Rech Cassarino.

This talk will present a light-hearted look at the story of beads from when it sprang up in the midst of the survivalist lifestyle of Early Hominids, through its various roles in ancient cultures - Sumerian, Phoenician, Etruscan, Egypt and Ancient Troy. The talk will be followed by a practical workshop where you will create your own personalised love version of the Trance Dancer.
