Photography: a world in a matchbox

90 min

15-25 people

Photography literally means drawing with light, and the good news is that anyone can learn how to do it! Have you ever wondered how does a camera work? Is it possible to make a DIY camera? If you are curious to learn about photo lab equipment and pinhole photography, we invite you to take part in this educational programme.

During this educational programme you will be an active participant. Just bring a matchbox and you will see for yourself: the world really does fit in a small matchbox!

Here are some pictures taken during this educational programme.

How did Thomas light up a light bulb?

90 min

10-30 people

Have you ever thought, what exactly happens when you switch on the light? If not, we invite you to participate in our educational programme “How Did Thomas Light Up a Light Bulb?”.

During this educational programme you will examine the benefits of electric power, the physical operating principles and most importantly – you will feel just like Thomas Alva Edison, because you will construct your own light bulb!

SKARYNA PRESS WORKSHOP

60 min

10-15 people

This year marks 500 years since Francysk Skaryna founded the first printing house in Eastern Europe in Vilnius and published the first book in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the “Small Travel Book” (1522).

During the workshop, you will get to know the old printing technique – you will collect and print your name from authentic letters, print a greeting to Vilnius on the occasion of its 700th anniversary or (for the most patient!) a page of a book. We then will appreciate how special the first printing process is.

The restoration of the press and the creation of the educational program were sponsored by Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania.

Guided tours and educational programmes can be booked from Tuesday to Sunday, 10 AM to 6.30 PM. Call us (+370 5) 275 4312 or write an email to [email protected].
