Turn the handle and see the unique, quirky and colourful Exhibits on display from Fire the Inventor spring into action. Then make your own mechanical marvel……

The Spinning Chopstick Automata Workshop is a hands-on fun way to explore basic mechanisms. Using a simple kit, your cam driven mechanism bursts into kinetic life as you turn the handle. Create your own individual design and decoration- inspired by the flow of movement, using recycled craft materials.


Take home your own artistic, reliable cam-driven automata!


Get inspired and find out more about the ENERGY HARVEST PROJECT at Hackney City Farm. We invite you to help create an energy webpage for our local community and build a Big Renewable Power Sculpture at the Farm, led by Stephen www.firetheinventor.co.uk


Next event day - Saturday 16th September- join us to collaborate on design ideas for the big sculpture build, and help shape ideas for the webpage.
