Design and build mechanical inhabitants for the Grinneabhat garden and polycrub. Make motorised insects and robotic rodents or program plants with guest artists Jamie Grier and Saehee V Simmons.

We’ll learn skills such as soldering, coding and using recycled materials to bring our creations to life and make them reactive to their environment. No prior experience necessary!

Please bring a packed lunch. Water and snacks will be provided.
