The British Museum ran an outreach event focusing on the Model of a Summer Camp in August, 2016

19 September 2016

The British Museum invited a group of artists to view and learn about the Model of a Summer Camp, over the middle week of August, 2016. The artists attended a series of workshops about the model, and related themes and museum artefacts. They had a couple of days to respond to their experiences, through experimenting with wax carving. The week culminated with a public exhibition of their work on Friday August 19.
