Community Arts & Science Mash Up: Magic and Mystery a Family Workshop


The Riverside Artists Group and Imperial College London have teamed up to celebrate the 150th anniversary of The Periodic Table of chemical elements, through a free hands-on art and science making workshop for local families.


Led by Imperial Chemist Richard Kong and Riverside Artist Group Emma Davies, the workshop will creatively explore magical experiments made with elements from the Periodic Table. It is the mystery of these chemicals, with their coded formulas, invisible but essential, that makes up our extraordinary and everyday worlds.


Demonstrations by Richard will inspire, while Emma will invite the families to invent and make elemental artworks.

The final design will be displayed on 2 street banners hanging outside White City Underground Station and The Invention Rooms as part of the H&F Arts Festival and will be there throughout the month of June for everyone to see.


The workshop is suitable for 7 – 11 year olds.

Please note, places are limited and open to families living in North Kensington and North of Hammersmith and Fulham.


Date and time: Sunday 12th May, 10.30 – 13.30

Venue: The Invention Rooms, 68 Wood Lane, W12 7TA
