Sunroom | Fabulous Flying Machines

Sunroom is about providing a safe creative space for art making, creative play and exploration for adults who identify with disability.

We believe in the social model of disability - that is, disability is the result of the interaction between people living with impairments and an environment filled with physical, attitudinal, communication and social barriers. (Sourced from PWD)

No prior art making experience is necessary, only a willingness to engage your imagination, curiosity and sense of play. 

May

Leonardo Da Vinci, renowned artist, scientist and inventor was captivated by the prospect of human flight. Creating numerous designs for flying machines well ahead of his time, Da Vinci's designs continue to fascinate and impress. In this workshop we will be designing, building and refining our own inventive sculptural flying machines and putting them to the test!  

This event is recommended for persons aged 18+.
