A workshop for all ages making spinners and flicker books. All materials supplied. Free, but donations welcomed if you have enjoyed yourself A return to 19th century experiments with moving images.
We shall be making thaumatropes, optical toys that were 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 visio

Also flip books or flick books which are books with a series of pictures that vary gradually from one page to the next, so that when the pages are turned rapidly, the pictures appear to animate by simulating motion or some other change.
