Making workshop at Machines Room for LDF

Making workshop at Machines Room for LDF

14 September 2016

Join makers Alexander Manukians and Vladyslav Bilozerov, from the IZOLAB fabrication laboratory (Kyiv, Ukraine) to explore spaghetti architecture at Machines Room on Tuesday 20 September, 11:00-15:00 as part of their Fix The City programme.   

Spaghetti is a fun and dynamic medium to create architectural models: all you need is a bunch of spaghetti, some glue and hot guns. At the workshop, Alexander and Vlad will show how to build spaghetti drawbridges and install their lifting parts, powered by a gear motor, batteries, winches, and ropes. This practical lesson is perfect for developing spatial thinking, mechanics, motor skills, and electronics. 

The workshop is held as part of a Maker Library Network exchange, where Maker Librarians have the opportunity to visit and learn about making cultures in another location in the network.
