Microsculpture

The Insect Photography of Levon Biss

Microsculpture is a ground breaking project by the British photographer Levon Biss. It presents insect specimens from the Oxford University Museum of Natural History like never before.  These images reveal an unexpected and often breathtaking beauty and make visible the many intricate adaptations to the form of insects – what entomologists call their microsculpture.

Microsculpture is a unique exhibition that presents insects like never before. The clarity and detail in the up to three metre prints brings normally unseen beauty to the audience, allowing them to study these stunning creatures in minute detail. The exhibition provides unique visual experience and celebrates the beauty of the natural world.

Happy HeARTs @ Weston Museum
Jun 11 @ 19:00 – 21:00
Happy HeARTs @ Weston Museum

Happy HeARTs is a series of workshops that will allow you to enjoy the benefits that creative art brings to your emotional and physical well-being.

This journey of self-discovery and self-healing will unlock the power of the sub-concious mind, allowing you to de-stress, relax and unwind.

You will explore a variety of ancient tools including mandala, affirmations and journalling. Using these therapeutic processes you will create your own art using self-expression rather than having high expectations of creating a masterpiece.

These workshops will increase creativity, intuition and help to manifest your dreams. They will change your limiting beliefs, heal emotional pain and will help you manage emotions in a positive way. Increasing confidence and happiness, helping you achieve the life you want to live.

Hosted by Jo Green.
Therapeutic Art & Happiness Life Coach, Professional Animal Portrait Artist, founder of Creations by Fina & Happy HeARTs.

Pub Quiz @ Weston Museum
Jun 12 @ 19:30 – 21:00
Pub Quiz @ Weston Museum

Try your luck at our pub quiz, with a difference!

For a start, it’s not in a pub! We hold the quiz in the courtyard of the museum and as far we know, we’re the only museum with a regular quiz night.

You don’t need to be a history buff! Our quiz covers everything from music, film, television and so much more.

The quiz includes a mystery object round, so whilst you’re getting the drinks in at our fully licensed bar, you can also have a guess at a selection of historical objects and replicas.

It’s only £5 per team (of up to five people) and the pub landlord has kindly donated a prize for the winning team.  The bar will be open from 6.30pm and the quiz begins at 7:30pm.
