As mentioned in an earlier blog I had the honour of being invited to meet with members of the Durham Woodworking Club to share my experiences in building contemporary automata. On Monday night this week, I spent a couple hours with club members and thoroughly enjoyed myself discussing woodworking and how they operate their very active club.
A memorable moment was when I hooked one of my own automata on display and brought it crashing to the floor! (&*#@%$!) Fortunately it landed well and survived the adventure.
Thank-you to the members of the club for their interest and the lovely memento of the evening.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
