Come and learn the skills to create your own stories, that can be viewed through that cute vintage creation of the View-Master!
Originally an alternative to scenic postcards, and way before the invention of virtual reality, they first showed stereoscopic images of tourist attractions and travel destinations.
Since they were introduced in 1939 there have been 25 different viewer models and every reel will work in every model.
View-Masters will be for sale at the class for $25 if you’d like to take one of those home with you!
What will we cover?
- How to design and make your own View-Master reel using old photo slides and/or drawings
- How to develop a short narrative
- How to play with colour and shapes.
- Time to view your art through our View-Masters
