Alexander Manukians and Vladyslav Bilozerov, makers at the IZOLAB fabrication laboratory (Kyiv, Ukraine), will organise a workshop in spaghetti architecture. The event is held as part of the Maker Library Network project by British Council with the support of the IZONE Creative Community.

Spaghetti is a fun medium to create architectural models: all you need is a bunch of spaghetti, some glue and hot guns. At the workshop, Alexander and Vlad will show how to build spaghetti drawbridges and install their lifting parts, powered by a gear motor, batteries, winches, and ropes. This practical lesson is perfect for developing spatial thinking, mechanics, motor skills, and electronics.

The event will take place at the Machines Room, 45 Vyner Street, London.
