Mesmerizing Mechanical Sculptures in Wood: The Art of Automata
Experience the whimsy and wonder of a sculpture that seems to have a life of its own! Automata are a source of joy, whimsy and wonder! Learn some basic principles about mechanical movement and create your own simple wooden machine that will delight and amaze! Cecilia will provide a simple kit with mechanical components and you carve a figure or an abstract sculptural form in wood to complete the design.
Bring your favorite carving knives and palm gouges for this project.
Additionally, small and medium sized screwdrivers (both slotted and Phillips), and a cordless drill would be helpful for assembling the kit.
$300 (includes kit)
