10:00am – 4:00pm 7th + 8th of October
Welcome to the incredible world of Mary Anning!
Join us at Milktooth as we spend two days exploring the life and work of one of the most important scientists of all time, Mary Anning. Born on the Southern coast of England, she spent her years tirelessly exploring the sea-side cliffs, excavating, interpreting and documenting the prehistoric fossils she found. Anning’s contributions to paleontology revolutionised our understanding of the deep past and the history of our planet.
Over two days we will discover different aspects of her life through a variety of creative projects, learning new skills and gaining new knowledge along the way.
Our small class size of only 12, means that each student will get the feedback and attention they need in order to achieve their best outcome.
In Junior Art we will be illustrating the incredible mathematical patterns of ferns, recreating the abstract patterns of cyanobacteria using organic paints, carefully drawing the dimensional forms of spiraling shells, felting a small model of Anning herself and much more.
At the end of masterclass, the completed works will be curated into a small, cabinet of curiosities to take home.
Thursday and Friday from 10.00am – 4.00pm on the 7th and 8th of October
This course is recommended for ages 7+
