Drop in this Saturday to our free family workshop My Micrarium Masterpiece
Saturday 30 April 11am-1pm (10-11am Family Members only)
Free, drop-in - no booking required
In this playful workshop for younger visitors, children can take a closer look at the specimens in the micrarium and use them as inspiration to design their own creepy crawly, or recreate their favourite sample.
This workshop, led by illustrator Lucia Vinti, will use translucent materials and a light box to recreate the appearance of the microscope slides. Children will create their artworks on acetate or tracing paper, using translucent marker pens and colourful cellophane to create their design. We will play with colours and layering, using the light box to see how colour and cellophane affect light.
If you would like to beat the crowds, the first event is open exclusively for our Family Members. The Museum will be open to Family Members from 10am.
