Create your own soundscape in this family activity.

Have you ever wondered who creates the sounds for films and television? In this short video inspired by our 2019 exhibition Hogarth & The Art of Noise, learn about Foley artists then have a go at making your own soundscape. A graduate from our training programme, Tracing Our Tales, guides you through the steps to make a soundscape for a diorama created using images from magazines, newspapers, website printouts or your own drawings.

You will need:

  • Pencil
  • Paper
  • Magazines or newspapers
  • Card
  • Glue
  • Simple household objects
  • A kind adult to film your finished work

For more ideas, listen to the soundscape made by Martyn Ware for our exhibition Hogarth & The Art of Noise here.
