Thaumatrope crafts

Admission Free
Start Time 11:00
End Time 12:30

Make a thaumatrope, a popular Victorian optical toy that was the predecessor of modern films and animation, in this family-friendly craft activity.

A thaumatrope is an optical toy that was popular in the 19th century. A disk with a picture on each side is attached to two pieces of string. When the strings are twirled quickly between the fingers the two pictures appear to blend into one due to the persistence of vision.

Suitable for all the family.
