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, co􏰀s, 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 to􏰀ether to to produce surprising and o􏰁ten amusing results.

Operating handles are sanitised after every use to maintain a Covid safe experience.
