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. We are open again this August Bank Holiday, from 24th to 26th August 2019 so please come along if you can. There is no charge and over the Bank Holiday you can park anywhere in our road free.
If you can't come or would like to remind yourself of the automata that you saw on a previous visit view them on my YouTube channel called Positivelycreative (no spaces) or view some of the videos directly from this website. I have had over 75,000 views of my short videos so far.
Bentley Wildfowl & Motor Museum The Woodfair at Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum has been an excellent venue to display lots of my craftwork and Mechanical Models for many years but, alas, the place has now closed so I will need to find other venues, but the Woodfair will be run this year on a slightly reduced scale and I will be there. 20th to 22nd September. If anyone is organising an exhibition and would like me to come along and bring some models to demonstrate and for members of the public to operate please let me know.
The carving group that I belong to is still going strong so if you are interested in wood carving why not join Bentley Wildlife Carvers (visit our website on www.bentleywildlifecarvers.uk). We now meet at the Arundel Wetlands Centre once a month (usually the second Sunday) to sit and whittle and swap tips. We have a display of beautifully carved and painted ducks and birds and are keen to chat to anyone interested.
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
