About the Course

You will design and make your own automaton or puppet over four sessions. Firstly you will learn simple metal crafts; marking, drilling, shaping and joining by various means including soldering, tapping and nuts and bolts. You will be shown example mechanisms, experiment with motors and a variety of mechanical tricks that will enable you to actually make your idea and have something to be proud of the take home.

I have been teaching adults for over twenty years and have many projects also
