Myths and Fairytales at the London Transport Museum.
Tuesday 13th February
Once upon a time Hermes, the Greek God of travellers, visited London. Inspired by Frederick Charles Herrick’s poster from 1924, join us for a story about a mythical adventure around London. We will also visit the Museum’s Myths and Fairytales poster exhibit and feathers and flowers to create our own headdress, in a nod to the themes and characters depicted on the posters.
We will begin the day by learning about the restoration of the Palace with a brick-rubbing trail before making our very own 3D pop-up scene of the Tudor Courtyard and clock tower. After arts and crafts we will finish by traveling back in time with a costumed tour to hear the storyteller’s ancient tales of Fulham Palace. Both historians and artists are sure to be entertained with an exciting day of hands on learning.
After visiting this exhibition we will have a story writng session. We will create a storybook and see our own tale come to life on the page. We will learn how to make words bounce and climb around our favourite scenes!
