Get crafty and creative as you explore how moving images were made before cinema.

Before we had screens to watch things on, people learned how to animate using the traditional techniques of flipbooks. Join us to create your own, and to learn a little about cinema pioneer Eadweard Muybridge, famous for creating the image sequences of running horses.
