Make a DrawBot (Ages 5+)

Location marker iconCastle HillTime iconCLOSED IN 2023

In this family workshop participants will make and experiment with their very own DrawBot.

DrawBots are motorised drawing machines which use weights and vibrations to create mesmerising one-of-a-kind drawings.

Participants will build their DrawBots and experiment with the positions of markers and weights then watch their DrawBots create artworks.

At the end of the workshop participants take their DrawBots home to continue playing and creating.

Family workshops are designed to create conversations between adults and young learners in a shared environment. They create a platform for learning to continue at home.

Recommended for ages 5+.

Children must be accompanied by an adult, although one adult may accompany multiple children within a small group of family and friends. Bookings essential for all participants (children and adults).

Accompanying adults who do not wish to make a DrawBot can register as a free supervising adult.
