Winding me up (interactive moving sculptures)

Have fun creating basic automata! Enjoy the experience of designing and constructing your own simple interactive sculpture. Learn the fundamentals of mechanisms, modelling, construction and decorating. You will end up with an interactive, moving work of art!

Workshop time.

An introduction to automata, a hands-on display of basic mechanisms and working models.

Several of the David's works will be on display for inspection. There will be some drawing, concept, designing and then mostly making time.

Experience level needed? Life experience and a sense of humour!  A basic understanding of manual hand tools will be useful; and there will also be instruction in the use of  basic power tools. Remember, David will be there for you if all else fails!
