Enjoy the Clockwork Garden Family Fun Day, designed to enable families to take part in all manner of fascinating, playful and novel activities. They won’t have seen anything like it! Make the most of a last opportunity to see the 'mechanimal' seed before it departs on 5 November.
As part of a day of drop-in activities marking the departure of the Clockwork Garden exhibition, join clockmaker Matthew Read as he takes a hands-on approach to looking inside automata - toys that move. From antiques to the modern day, sprockets, springs, cogs & levers are as important today as they were when the Museum’s Silver Swan and mechanical mouse were made. This short, fun talk will use modern clockwork toys to explain how automata work and why taking things to bits is great fun and a brilliant way to learn.
In this half day workshop, photographic artist Lee Karen Stow shares thoughts and tips on how to create and sustain a personal photography project or long-term body of work. Learn how to turn your chosen theme or passion into an individual narrative, expressing what you love about life. She will also look at ways to share your work, to exhibit and ways to get your work seen. Suitable for photographers with moderate to advanced level of experience. Cost includes the artist’s talk Poppies: Women, War and Peace, which follows at 2.30.
