Following the techniques of Renaissance globe-makers, and possibly inventing new methods, this workshop will create 3-dimensional globes from 2-dimensional prints. Artist Adam Dant leads the creativity in the Bodleian's hand-press workshop, with printer Richard Lawrence.
The workshop runs from 11 am to 3 pm, with a break at lunchtime. The location is the Bodleian's hand-press workshop in the Old Bodleian Library, entrance from the Old Schools Quadrangle.
No experience necessary. All materials provided. Suitable for ages 8+. This event is free but limited to 10 participants. To attend you must register for tickets, see link below.
The workshop forms part of Adam Dant's Westgate Cultural Meridian project, commissioned for the Westgate Oxford Public Art Programme.
