A cabinet of wonders used to be a place where people would collect all sorts of curiosities: from dried insects and stuffed foxes to old coins and odd things from distant times and lands. Today we would call it a museum. At the workshop led by artist David Krančan, master of electronics Janez Cimerman and technical wizard Tomo Per, we’ll get our hands on some curious objects indeed. We’ll conjure up a story using drawings, words and sounds, while learning how to use new maker technologies and electronics.

 

The creative workshop takes place in the framework of Bobri, the festival of culture and arts education.
