Automata, puppets and clocks

Storytelling through automata with Rachel Larkins

Ref: SLW08572




Consider the potential of automata to tell a story through drawing and making inspired by antique and contemporary moving toys. By reflecting on the use of materials, construction and experiments with simple moving mechanisms, you will develop an idea for a moving sculpture from two-dimensional sketch to three-dimensional realisation.
