About the event

Join us for family activities exploring our exhibitions of the earliest photography, A New Power and Bright Sparks.

Conjure up a cyanotype photo collage using nothing but light, and pose for a Victorian family portrait.

  • Play with photographic chemistry and make  a cyanotype artwork in bright beaming blue
  • Craft your own top hat to pose for a photo like a Victorian and print a photo frame on our printing press
  • Discover classic cameras from our handling collection
  • Explore the photography exhibitions with family-friendly exhibition trails

For ages 5 to 11.
