Open House exhibition As you can see from other pages of my website I make mechanical models and other weird and wonderful creations. We occasionally have an "Open House" exhibition during August Bank Holiday weekend and this year we must have had over 200 visitors enthusiastically operating the models - from age 2 to 92 everyone was having fun and it was a joy to see. Lots of visitors had tea and home-made cake in our lovely garden on Saturday and Monday. Sunday was heavy rain all afternoon but, despite that, we had lots of visitors. I had nearly all my models on display and they all performed faultlessly - which was good. There were around 50 to play with. A big THANK YOU to all who came. It was our pleasure to put on the show.
If you missed it or you would like to remind yourself of the automata that you saw you can view them on my YouTube channel called Positivelycreative (no spaces) or view some of the videos directly from this website.
Bentley Woodfair The Woodfair will be in September 2018 and I will have a selection of my models on display there - at the Bentley Woodfair at Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum, Halland. In previous years we have had hundreds of visitors having fun playing with the models. Thank you to all who came last year, and thanks, too, for all your encouraging comments. I can't bring all my mechanical models to the Woodfair but, in addition to some old favourites, do have a few new ones every year. I am one of Bentley Wildlife Carvers so look out for our exhibition in the Education Room on the left as you come in. The Woodfair is a great day out with lots of interesting stalls and displays, plus the wildfowl and Motor Museum. Check out their website www.bentley.org.uk
If you are interested in wood carving why not join Bentley Wildlife Carvers (visit our website on www.bentleywildlifecarvers.uk). We meet in the Education block at Bentley once a month to sit and whittle and swap tips. We have our room open for the Woodfair (just behind the tea room) with a display of beautifully carved and painted ducks and birds. We are a bit "tucked-away" as we are not in the main field and I know that some people have difficulty finding us. Come and see us at the Woodfair.- read about Bentley and the Woodfair on www.bentley.org.uk
Here is a video of a marble run which is small so has ball bearings instead of marbles. Otherwise it would have been called Don't lose your Marbles! Other videos can be seen by clicking HERE
