-Their turn, to build their toys.-

Star Wars Figurines

After so many years building, sewing, painting, carving, tinkling toys and games for my children, they now do it themselves! The rule under our roof is; -start with what you have-. Having enough bits of timber in the shed, my son (11) decided to cut out some lightsabers for himself, his sister and his friends! I let you imagine the number of sabre fight we had at our house, at the park, in the bush, at the beach… in only a few weeks.

I love to see him draw and cut the shapes and drilling for the ”light blade”. My suggestion of carving each handle and sanding them till it’s cylindrical didn’t have much success…so here it is, raw and already well used:

The Finders Keepers in Melbourne

The Finders Keepers

 

Next July, The Map Game will have the honour to be part of the iconic Finders Keepers in Melbourne.

It’s a very exciting experience to be part of the festival of makers and designers from around Australia!

So I’ve started to work on a display for the Games and an automaton for the visitors. Tinkering with old mechanisms, crank handle, wood, rocks and wire, I’m surfing through the days with joy. (Well, and stress too!)

I will post more about my progress and ‘behind the scene’ pictures on Instagram in the next few weeks. Please come along!
