Extinction at the Museum

Visitors to Manchester Museum spent time, looking at the Extinction/Survival exhibition before producing inspirational and creative prints based on displays in the museum. Participants looked at animals under threat and those which have become extinct, using cut out wallpapers to make positive and negative shapes. Over four days more than 500 prints were produced using water based inks and a portable press.
