Microscopes to kaleidoscopes: art and science workshop
To coincide with the opening of The Francis Crick Institute’s first ever public exhibition, How do we look? Exploring the scientific gaze at the Crick, we’re running a series of free creative workshops from mid-November 2016 to January 2017 that will explore the world of scientific imaging.
Through hands-on activities using ultraviolet light and fluorescent materials, find out how scientists use light to reveal structures and patterns that are normally impossible to see with the naked eye. By the end of the workshop you will get to take home your very own fluorescent kaleidoscope inspired by microscopic images of the human body.
Led by professional artist Isobel Manning with the support of Crick researchers, the workshops are free to attend and open to adults and families. We recommend the workshops are suitable for children aged 6 and over. Additional workshops will be offered to community groups from Somers Town.
