Long before animation and motion pictures, we had optical toys. In this workshop, we will create a collection of paper optical toys developed in the early 19th century, like the zoetrope and phenakistoscope. These devices spin around a set sequence of images to create the illusion of movement. Templates to create model structures will be provided, along with tips for creating your own content that bridges books, toys, and animation. And since we'll be in the midst of Hallowe'en season, the optical toys we'll make in this edition of the workshop will all have a certain spooky spin.
