Take Apart

by Studio X

What is inside of a printer? What is the proper way to use a drill? Learn the answers to these questions and more through hands-on eXploration in Take Apart, a new experience by Studio X.  

Every machine can be broken down into smaller parts that are easier to understand. In Take Apart, you use tools to open and learn about the different components of electronics and gadgets. With all the parts, you can create something new and eXciting.  

 

This interactive experience lets you focus on safe tool use and practice the responsible operation of screwdrivers, power drills, soldering irons and hot glue guns in a controlled environment. Studio eXperts are there to guide you through the entire process. 

 

Join us on Saturdays to work on an electric Nissan LEAF. A Studio eXpert will show you how to remove seats and doors and even change a tire.  

 

No reservations needed. Activities will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis.

 

 


Make Your Own Cardboard Automata

A completed automata.

Building automata is one of our favorite activities at the Tinkering Studio. It is a great way to explore how cams and levers work as well as how to incorporate movement into your art.  Automaton tells a story through its motion.

Simple automata are easy to make. We like to use cardboard boxes as a frame, but you can also use other materials such as wood or plastic cups. There are many types of automata. Look on the web for many inspirational works by automata artists who create these amazing moving machines.
