About this course

Create unexpected and curious moving sculptures using doll parts, your imagination and a nod to Surrealism, in the spirit of College founder and Surrealist patron Edward James.


Stephen Guy

Stephen Guy is a practical hands-on maker and mechanical artist specialising in running automata. He regrets the apparent demise of people's ability to use tools, to repair, hack and maintain the physical things on which they depend. He wants to help revitalise a practical and inventive making culture, and raise the status of skilled craft and technical work.
