Family colouring in Dazzle ships

Discover the art and illusion behind Dazzle camouflage with IWM’s Dazzle Design Studio at IWM London.

Play a game of nautical hide and seek this September as part of the Art History Festival. Inspired by the work of artist Norman Wilkinson, explore how this experimental camouflage involving bold designs and shapes, made it possible to hide something the size of a battleship.

In our Dazzle Design hub, families can create their very own designs and find out how optical illusions and tricks of the eye can be used to confuse and disorientate. You can even test your creations through a telescope on the high seas without having to leave dry land.

Suitable for children 5+ years. For families attending with additional younger children, step-free accessibility information can be found here.

Please note children 13 years and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
