The history of Automaton dates back a long time ago overseas. It is a creative approach enabling creators to transform different force powers into imaginations and stories. The course will start with teaching simple mechanical structures. Students will be able to make a series of storytelling automaton by learning traditional woodworking techniques. This is a journey of kinetic art creation.
The course aims at promoting the automaton craft heritage, passing down the traditional woodworking techniques and developing visual language expression. The course starts with the introduction of what automaton is and the recognition of different gear sets. Participants will learn how to use the wood working tools and the relevant techniques. During the learning process, they will be equipped to create their own pieces of art.
