We’ve had huge demand for the kits, and unfortunately we’re currently out of stock
We’ve teamed up with our friends at Leicester Lo-Fi Photography to put together our Creative Kits, which provide materials and inspiration for you to create ‘do-it-yourself’ film and art projects at home.
Each kit includes the materials and instructions you need to make a Zoetrope – a hand-held spinner that lets you create simple animations through a magical optical illusion, and a range of ‘analogue’ photography projects that use old-fashioned techniques to make stunning photographic images without the need for a phone, camera or computer.
What’s in the box?
A Zoetrope kit, with instructions, templates and materials. This activity is best for ages 5+.
A Light & Time kit, with a booklet of instructions and suggested projects, envelopes of photographic paper and a pinhole exposure calculator. This kit offers a number of different activities to try – Lumenprints and Sunprints are best for ages 8+, while the Camera Obscura, Pinhole Camera and Solargraphy projects are best for ages 12+.
All the activities are perfect for families to complete together. Please make sure any cutting involved is supervised by an adult.
Our Creative Kits have been designed to introduce you to the world of animation, photography and the moving image through making and creativity. The projects can all be put together with just a few basic crafting tools and household materials.
The kits are available for free to families living in Leicester or Leicestershire. You can order the kits online from this page when they’re back in stock
