About Make Your Drawings Move

As part of this year's Festival of Museums, join us for our animation drop-in sessions for the whole family as we create 'old school' animated sequences inspired by the magnificent 'Edinburgh Alphabet' exhibition. We will use a 19th century-inspired optical viewing device called a 'Zoetrope' to see our drawings magically spring to life! (Please note: modern technology will be used sparingly!).

Adult supervision required, suitable for ages 8 and over. No need to book, just drop in.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Make Your Drawings Move are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
