Leading Scientists and award-winning artist will explore the science and secrets of colour at a FREE family drop-in Art and Science workshop session set to be hosted at Grimsby’s Top Town Market.
‘Unweaving the Rainbow’ is a unique opportunity for everyone to learn more about colour, how we see it, and how it’s used in nature.
The session, hosted at the Market by Scientists from University of Sheffield and award-winning artist Paul Evans will also explore the colour wheel and look at how colour is processed in the brain.
Unweaving the Rainbow: The Art of Science and Colour, is coming to Grimsby Top Town Market on Saturday 16 February 2019 from 10am to 3pm.
There’s also the opportunity to discover how animals see and use colour and how scientists are using powerful x-rays to better understand the world around us.
Paul Evans is working with researchers from the department of scientists at the University of Sheffield to engage people of all ages with this fascinating topic.
Unweaving the Rainbow offers a glimpse into the worlds of art and science, and encourages you to think creatively about colour and its origins.
You’ll also have the chance to discover more about ‘structural colouration’ in nature, such as bird feathers and butterfly wings. For more information, visit https://unweavingtherainbow.org/ and www.ourbigpicture.co.uk.

The event is funded by the Science and Technology Facilities Council. For more details, visit https://structuralcolour.org. Art in the Market is funded by North East Lincolnshire Council and its partner, Engie and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
