The Power Plant

Lost and Found Fossils

Sun Oct 23 2016

11:00 AM – 1:00 PM


The Power Plant

Join us in this workshop starting with a tour of Yto Barrada’s exhibition Faux Guide, in which participants will be joined by Toni Davies, Palaeontologist and ROM educator. Participants will then act as palaeontologists in search of “fossils” scattered around The Power Plant. After discovering the fossil’s history, participants will use a variety of natural and synthetic materials to fashion a representation of the prehistoric site where the fossil was left behind. At the end of the program, participants will take both their discoveries and creations home.
