Camera Obscura - make a sketch!
Thu September 14th from 10:00am
Visit our Camera Obscura on the Parade Extension!
Discover live, moving images of the pier and views across Hastings and St Leonards. Move the disks up and down to change the focus of the image, and pull the chords to change direction.
You can use it to make a sketch of the seafront (just as the Victorians did!). Simply lay a piece of plain paper over the disk and trace the outlines of the buildings and shore (as in the example above).
This works best on a sunny day.
