Join us for a creative afternoon exploring the theme of people and places at Junction 3 Library.
As part of the Architecture Centre’s 20th anniversary Our Place programme, join Architecture Centre, Watershed and Children’s Scrapstore at Junction 3 Library, Easton for a creative afternoon of innovation exploring the theme of people and places.
Watershed will be there exploring how cinema got started, and what better way to find out than by interacting with models of early cinema artefacts and creating your own moving images? With plenty of pencils and paper at the ready, you can get drawing and make your own movies using model praxinoscopes, zoetropes and thaumatropes, as they show you how magic tricks and illusions created the moving images that began the awesome story of film!
Maybe you’ll create a scene with a spooky twist just in time for Halloween? There’ll be lots of inspiring images on hand for you and your little ones to work from, including stills from Watershed’s October half term family film Phantom Boy (Sat 22 - Sat 29 Oct) - a beautiful hand drawn French animation set in New York.
