HALF TERM WORKSHOP: Big Draw - Fossils

Friday 27 October, 11am-4pm
Learning Studio
Free, just drop in
Suitable for all

Imagine digging deep into layers of earth and rock to uncover fossils that are thousands of years old. In this Big Draw workshop you’ll be working with artist Elaine Winter and palaeontologist Dr Susannah Lydon to make a large sedimentary frieze representing the geological layers. Learn about fossils and then create your own wax resist drawings to add to the display. Susie and her student assistants will have some fossils for you to handle, and you can also see the famous ichthyosaur in the Dinosaurs of China exhibition.
