In this workshop I will introduce the children to iridescence. We will look how certain objects – shells, peacock feathers to name a few – catch rainbow colours as their surface reacts to light in an unusual way. Because this is fascinating as much from a scientific point of view as from a purely artistic one, this workshop will delight children when practicing their colour gradients to achieve iridescent effects.
Sessions are for children of six to 12 years, each for a maximum of six children, lasting ninety minutes. They take place as usual at my home in Danemere Street (Putney SW15 1LT).
