August Activities at the Powell-Cotton Museum

Bored, listless, and lacking things to do? - the children, that is, not you!

The August Activities programme is back, and we are bringing you a celebration of all things photographic this summer to celebrate Percy Powell-Cotton's passion for photography. Discover the history of photography with the Powell-Cotton Museum.  Each week we will be exploring different ways images can be created.  Have a go at making a cyanotype, create your own camera obscura and use a modern digital camera to create very different images.

Week 2 - 8th -11th August - Kaleidoscopes
Week 3 - 15th -18th August - Cyanotypes
