What’s Coming Up

Mechanical Colour Wheel and Animation workshop
21 May 2017, midday until 6pm at Bow Art’s  The Rum Factory Open Studio London.
Informal drop-in session at The Rum Factory Studio’s Open Day (free entry). Play around making a spinning disc machine out of a box and chopsticks, and use it to create colour wheels and animate images. Suitable for all ages (children must be accompanied by an adult).
There will be a £4 materials charge per box.


Dockside Automata at Gallions Reach, May – July 2017

We are thrilled to be taking over Bow Arts’ glorious new arts hub, RAW Lab, for three months and injecting it with the flavour of engineered art and performing assemblages. It will be open to the public at weekends. There will be an automata exhibition thanks to Cabaret Mechanical Theatre, ongoing community workshops helping to build a largish mechanical sculpture, and Fire the Inventor’s working studio, all presided over by Artist in Residence, Stephen.

Second time at the rather marvellous and luxurious Cheltenham Science Festival (6 – 11 June 2017). This time we are running a new mechanical colour and animation wheel workshop, on Saturday 10 June. More details here.


Off to the National Science Museum, Daejeon, South Korea, from July – October 2017, as the educational workshop arm of the impressive Cabaret Mechanical Theatre-Sharmanka travelling exhibition.
