Join us for a very special Late, inspired by our Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing exhibition.

We’ll be delving into Leonardo's workshop, exploring his inventions, scientific discoveries and feats of engineering.

Learn about how the Renaissance master approached anatomical drawing in Leonardo’s Anatomy Lesson led by award winning artist Paul Evans. This fun and dynamic drawing class is based on Leonardo’s explorations into the anatomy of the human figure. Working from the live model, you will learn how to make quick, confident, observational sketches based on the figure in motion.

Explore a full size replica of Leonardo’s aerial screw – a prototype for the modern helicopter - which will be up and running in the gallery space.

Challenge your inner genius in our invention workshop, where you can junk model fantastical machines.

Experiment with an alternative approach to creating a drawing and join artist Beatrice Knowles for a very special Leonardo-themed workshop, Drawing with Wire. Using Leonardo as a reference (or your own imagination) create a unique wire sculptural drawing.

We’ll be sound tracking the evening with a STEM inspired soundtrack and we’re delighted to welcome science rapper Jon Chase. Jon is the UK’s foremost proponent of Science Raps having performed his science raps at The Science Museum, The Royal Society, The Royal Institution, and at many theatres, libraries and science festivals across the UK.
