The Invisible Blue Island is an interactive digital artwork created in collaboration with artist Edie Jo Murray.

Blue Room artists will demonstrate how to visit the augmented reality space on iPads, showing you a series of portals hidden amongst plants in the Bluecoat garden.

Free family workshop, drop in.

Make your own hybrid animal puppet inspired by the unusual creatures found on the island.

You can also pick up a copy of a new activity booklet for children and families, created by Blue Room artists in collaboration with designer Holly Eliza Temple.

The project has been developed with funding from the Weston Garfield Foundation.
