Description

CRAFT ACTIVITY: MAKE A THAUMATROPE

Translated roughly as 'turning wonder' in Ancient Greek, the thaumatrope is a toy that uses a spinning disc to combine two separate pictures into one through optical illusion. Join artist Lai Wei Min for this family-friendly programme in the park, and make your own thaumatrope to take home!

Workshop materials will be provided.
