Luke McElcheran – Hand-Cranked Mechanical Toys

I produce hand cranked mechanical toys including paper kits to build at home and wooden models with hand carved figures. Inspired by the work of artists represented by Cabaret Mechanical Theatre, these automata use mechanical movements to tell a joke.

Hands-on activity at the Festival:
Visitors are encourage to use the automata, to turn the crank and see what they do.
