Clocks and Automata - A hands-on exhibition!

About 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 together in an exhibition where the visitors do the work - fiddling with clocks and driving crazy contraptions!

Nowadays, we have electronic digital clocks - amazingly reliable and accurate, but they lack the clunky charm of old-school technology! That’s what you’ll see here - pendulums, escapements, cogs, ratchets... But the decorative qualities of clocks are not forgotten. Some designs take their inspiration from the Glasgow style, and the Arts and Crafts movement.

Ian’s wooden Automata depict the secret activities of that little icon of British wildlife - the hedgehog. Art, Music, Sport… Who knew? Cams, levers, twisty bits, and more gears - they all work together to produce surprising and often amusing results.

Venue: Pittenweem New Town Hall, Session Street, Pittenweem, KY10 2QL, Fife
