Learn to use a simple mechanism and create your own mechanical moving toy using recycled materials and lots of paint and glue in just two half-day sessions!

If you have a metal wire coat hanger and a cardboard shoebox with a lid please bring these along, we will have some available and all other workshop materials will be provided. The activity will be hands on and messy but fun, so wear clothing that enables an activity of this nature!

Cardboard Automata are a playful way to explore simple mechanical items such as cams, levers, and linkages while creating a moving sculpture.
