Our workshops are cross-curricular and combine traditional arts & crafts with sciences & new technologies.

The goal is to to spark critical thinking and creative problem solving, by using art and creativity to investigate and explore scientific phenomena.

Tinkamel has delivered workshops in libraries, maker fairs, children book fairs, community groups, youth clubs, museums, art venues, art galleries, and festivals for children, teenagers, adults, families, students and educators.

We deliver tailored fun, hands-on introductions to new technologies and making.
