Get ready to unleash your inner artist and engineer as you embark on a two-day adventure to paint and assemble your very own whimsical Flying Pig Automaton! This beginner-friendly workshop promises loads of fun without needing a degree in mechanical engineering.

Day 1 (3 hours) We'll kick things off by diving into the basics of mechanical marvels, exploring how simple mechanisms can bring sculptures to life. Then, it's time to get hands-on as we paint the laser-cut wood parts, letting our imaginations take flight as we add color and character to our flying pigs.

Day 2 (2 hours) Assembly day has arrived! With step-by-step instructions and plenty of individual help on standby, we'll bring our creations to life. Whether you're a seasoned artisan or a complete novice, there's no need to fret—we'll guide you through every twist and turn.

What’s included: ● Pre-sanded and primed engineered wood parts ● Adhesive ● Galvanized wire, mechanisms, and all the hardware you'll need ● A rainbow of acrylic paints, brushes, paint pens, and colored wire ● Handy hand tools to bring your vision to life

Knowledge Level: This workshop is tailor-made for curious minds eager to craft their own quirky object d'art. No prior mechanical knowledge is required—just bring your enthusiasm and a dash of patience. After all, good things come to those who wait, especially when it comes to assembling moving mechanisms!

And just for extra fun: Got a stash of quirky embellishments, trinkets or doodads gathering dust? Bring them along for a chance to add some extra pizzazz to your creation—or swap with fellow participants for even more inspiration! Who knows? You might stumble upon the perfect finishing touch or spark a burst of creativity in someone else. Let the whimsy flow freely
