Space Rocks! Art and Astronomy Family Day

23 November

10:30am – 3:30pm

Do you love stars and space?

Get inspired at our Space Rocks family event with a day of hands-on art and science talks and activities. View the night skies inside a pop-up planetarium and investigate the science of light with the team from Kielder Observatory.

Work with visual artist Helen McGhie in an astronomy art workshop to make space rock photograms and clay meteorites with ceramicist David Partington. Helen will give a talk about the inspiration behind her photographic work with Dan Monk from Kielder Observatory.

This event has been funded by the Institute of Physics (IOP).

Tickets for the planetarium, science and art workshops are FREE but must be booked in advance.
