Indian Moving Toys And Wire Portrait Workshops
 
Indian Moving Toys Workshop
 
Indian Moving Toys is a highly popular workshop that can be tailor-made for Keystages 1, 2 & 3. During the workshop each child has the opportunity to make their own moving toy based on an Indian example. Tony also entertainingly demonstrates his collection of Indian moving toys, touching on such subjects as physical forces (gravity, centrifugal force, friction, etc), the properties of different materials and recycling.
