Invent an Instrument
Artist Dylan Martorell will teach children how to make an instrument. But, not just any instrument – a conductive percussion instrument made from household waste that is connected to a computer robotics system. Hello. This workshop redefines what we can do with our own rubbish with a bit (okay a lot) of imagination. Children will assemble their own instruments, install an immersive sound environment and then play music together as a robotic orchestra. Our friends at Canberra’s Blue Gum Community School will be on hand to help students realise the incredible.
There are two sessions, one for kids 6-11 and a free-form session with kiddies 3 – 5 years old.
All children must be supervised by an adult. Places are limited to just 20 spots.
All Fix and Make program attendees get 15% off their stay at Hotel Hotel. Book via hotel-hotel.com.au using the booking code HHFIXANDMAKE. Fine print – subject to availability and not available on some Saturdays or parliamentary sitting dates.
