Workshop 1: Flight Construction
Come and explore flight through the physics of the paper airplane. Attendees will encounter how and why these objects fly by creating and testing different designs. There will also be opportunities to test their constructions from different heights.
Workshop 2: The Art of Paint Making
How did Leonardo da Vinci complete the Mona Lisa before canvas or oil paints were invented? Come experiment with the techniques and tools that he would have used in his studio, before creating your own Renaissance-style, egg tempera painting.
Workshop 3: Cartography
Have you ever wondered how to accurately map a landscape’s features, from sharp cliffs to sweeping valleys, or towering peaks to meandering rivers? Create your own salt-dough landscape by learning how to see and draw contour lines, and explore the tools and methods of map making past and present.
