The idea behind our traditional toy making workshops is to engage people of all ages and backgrounds in the joy of simple mechanics. Your teacher Brittany Nicole Cox, a professional clock and watchmaker, will teach you to create moving scenes using things like cardboard, straws, tissue, and more. Explore the history of time keeping, find out how gear loops work, and discover the whimsy of mechanical devices. You'll start with an instruction sheet to follow for basic systems - you can play it safe with proven designs or branch out on your own to create a unique toy all your own! We offer these activities for groups of all ages. You pick the time – and we'll bring the materials! We can come to you or you can schedule a private class at the Memoria Technica workshop where you'll get a tour of the machinery used in a past era to create mechanical objects. Just check out our other listing: Message us if you have any special needs! Such as a birthday cake or you want to add more people! We charge $20 per extra person. You'll take home at least one toy, an instruction sheet, and our monthly workshop zine! No previous experience necessary.

I've been interested in mechanical objects since a young age. After many years of study in Swiss, American, and British horology programs, I became certified as an Antiquarian Horologist, which is another way of saying “specialized mechanic”. More specifically, I am a clock- and watchmaker who specializes in the conservation and restoration of antique automata and mechanical music objects. I own and operate Memoria Technica, a small workshop in Seattle where I make mechanical automata, toys, optical illusions, mechanical magic, and teach heritage crafts. My workshop includes a collection of machines from the original Bulova watchmaking factory.
