Patterns in geology: Artists study day

Step back millions of years in time for an untutored adults-only artists’ study day in the geology stores.

The day is a unique opportunity for artists to take inspiration and work directly from some of the beautiful and rarely seen specimens cared for in the museums geology collection.

Be inspired by the colours, patterns, textures and shapes from the geological world.

Intricate fossil in the geology store for artists study dayStudy beautiful lava flow patterns, the natural symmetry and shapes in fossils and all the beautiful colours and crystal forms of minerals.

The curator will source material by request prior to the day from some of the half a million objects carefully stored behind the scenes.

Please bring your own materials – dry materials only and non SLR cameras please.

There is no step free access to the geology store. Please contact us to discuss any access requirements.
