Magic Lanterns are ancient apparatus of lenses and lamps once used by showmen to conjure up strange and fantastical moving images in darkened rooms.
During this 2 hour workshop we will be making our own magic lantern slides using glass, acetate, pens, paints and collage exploring how your picture can be brought to life using light.
These sessions will be suitable for 7 years and older
Nicole Mollett and Frog Morris use re-purposed pre-cinema projection equipment to share the art of Magic Lanterns and to create new live performance pieces for contemporary audiences. Nicole and Frog will be leading these workshops.
Want to see a Magic Lantern in action after your workshop? On the 29th and 30th we will be running performative tours of the Museum using lanterns. What happens in the Museum when the lights go out? Book your places here.
