Family Workshop: Poster Design with Mark Oliver

Playful posters and illustrated biographies inspired by Marie Neurath.

When, Where

Make playful posters using symbols and collage inspired by Marie Neurath’s pioneering information design.

At this workshop for 5-12 year old illustrators-in-the-making, they’ll look at the ground-breaking graphics produced by the Isotype Institute – an organisation that made proper grown-up science accessible to children – and collage posters inspired by these works.

They’ll then delve into Marie Neurath’s books for children and sketch out illustrated biographies of Neurath herself.

Your ticket to the workshop includes entry to our current exhibitions: Posy Simmonds: A RetrospectiveMarie Neurath: Picturing Science and Quentin Blake: From the Studio.

Materials are provided.
