Event description

Description

Make your own magic lantern slide with the help of artists Nicole Mollett and Frog Morris. See and be inspired by original 18th century slides of beasts and monsters painted by Sevenoaks artist William Knight.

Use acetate, pens and printed transparencies create your own magic collage, which can be projected through the magic lanterns. Try using water based paints to create your own monster slides.

There will be a mini performance at regular intervals to project the slides.
