A Crafts Council Touring Exhibition of extraordinary automata. Automata are moving mechanical sculptures which are brought magically to life through a sequence of cogs, cams and levers. For centuries they have delighted and bewitched people. Visitors will be able to turn, push and crank to see many of the pieces in action!

A Curious Turn presents automata from the leading makers of the last 40 years, ranging from the humorous to the macabre and from the playful to the satirical. Works on show take a look at key automata makers such as Rowland Emett, famous for creating the elaborate inventions of Caractacus Potts in the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968)

Family Workshops: drop in anytime between 11am and 3pm. 10, 31 March, 11, 21 April. Free, suggested donation £2/child
