Automata – Mechanical Art Workshops with Stephen Guy
13 – 14 June 2020 & 10 – 11 October 2020 – more details here

Phoenix Studios is a marvellous independently run arts and crafts classes in a purpose built studio in the heart of Oxfordshire. Stephen is introducing an automata making class. James Ort, who runs the studio, attended Stephen’s workshop at West Dean last year and thought he would be a hit at Phoenix – so invited him to run two  courses.




Making automata – mechanisms and kinetic artworks

Stephen’s back at beautiful West Dean to run a six day course exploring the engineering challenge of making reliable mechanisms and how they can be harnessed to produce interesting movements and striking artworks or automata.
Full details from West Dean College.
