Clocks and Automata a hands-on exhibition!
Quirky Clocks and Amazing Automata… These are the results of woodcrafter Ian Graham’s Lockdown Labours, now brought toĀether in an exhibition where the visitors do the work – fiddling with clocks and driving crazy contraptions!
Clocks were the among the first devices where ingenious mechanisms were put to work for a purpose – telling the time. Nowadays for doing that job we have electronic digital clocks…. Amazingly reliable and accurate, but they lack the clunky charm of old-school mechanics!
That’s what you’ll see here -pendulums, escapements, cos, ratchets…
And the decorative nature o clocks is not forgotten. The Arts and Crafts movement and the Glasgow style inspire some o the clock designs. Elegant native hardwoods are used in all the clocks.
Gears, cams, levers, twisty bits – they all work toether to to produce surprising and oten amusing results.
Operating handles are sanitised after every use to maintain a Covid safe experience.
