Beyond “do not touch” and “did you know people used to have to…”
Building on the work of our History Lab series, our maker spaces emphasize hands-on, historically based activities that bring developments in technology and the arts to life. What technologies go in to taking a basic black & white photograph? Where does the paper you (might not even) write on come from–and what was life like when it was in much shorter supply? Do you want to learn to craft like a 19th century person? These are the questions we want you to be able think through as active participants making your own connections and finding your own insights. Re-discover the origins of the aesthetic and technological changes of the last 200 hundred years with us at the following workshops!
