How would you solve the problem of air pollution; A giant vacuum cleaner? An anti-smog gun? Sticky tape clothes? We will be throwing open the doors to our imaginations to have fun finding solutions, maybe sensible, but mainly not!  

Join artist Rachael Nee for a workshop inspired by the book "Fumifugium, or, The inconveniencie of the aer and smoak of London dissipated together with some remedies humbly proposed", the first book on air pollution written in 1661!

Morning (10:30-12:30) for drawing with ink made from recycled carbon

Afternoon (2-4pm) for 'humbly proposing remedies' with recycled materials

Children must be accompanied by an adult
