14th June 5:00pm to 6:30pm

Join artist and expert arts educator Natalie Kay for a joyful and collaborative project inspired by Kingston's local landscape at Kingston Museum. 

Uncover the secrets of Eadweard Muybridge’s striking 1878 San Francisco Panorama, one of the most important artefacts in Kingston Museum's Muybridge Collection. This 13-panel photograph, over 17 foot-long, captures a sweeping view - 50 miles long and 15 miles wide - of the homes, businesses, busy ports, feuding neighbours and ghostly figures of this booming gold rush city soon to be flattened by earthquake and fire.

Inspired by the panorama, young artists will design, draw and collage individual and collaborative artworks for public display and to take home. Parents and guardians will be encouraged to participate!

This workshop is suitable for children aged 8 to 12. Children must be accompanied. 

The event price is £10 per child and all supplies are provided. Payment is to be made on the day, and in cash only. Tickets must be reserved through Eventbrite and paid on the day. Any questions or queries, please contact Kingston Museum at: kingston.museum@kingston.gov.uk or call 020 8547 6463.
