Mechanical Workshops

The workshops are available for schools, maker, art and social events, and science festivals. We like travelling, so are happy to go anywhere. The workshops can be flexible in format and time as required by the school or venue. They can be timed sessions or drop-ins, can be themed around wider projects, such as Inventors or Robots, and orientated towards different age and ability groups.

Demonstration Machines
To complement the workshops, we bring along a small collection of curious machines to play with and learn from, and to give a creative context to the workshop. These colourful exhibits offer an entertaining way to see how cams, linkages and crankshafts work.

How much do the workshops cost?
Well, they vary according to the workshop type, circumstances and location (long distances from London – where I’m based – may incur a travel time and accomodation charge), but broadly the range for a day workshop in and around London is from £300-£500, plus the cost of materials from £3-£4 for the box-based workshops, more for the wood-metal kits. There is a hire charge for the Ensemble workshop. The collection of interactive automata that accompany workshops are free.

Zoom workshop options are also available.

Do please contact me with your workshop requirements and I can cost it.

Can I just the buy kits?
Yes. Do ask and we’ll most likely be able to supply you.
