Workshop interview #5: Rubberband Rockets
Today, we're chatting to Gareth and Jeanie from Rubberband Rockets, who will be explaining all about their workshop on the Saturday afternoon at Indietracks!
Hi, what's your workshop all about?
Our workshop this year will be about runaway trains. Visitors will design and build their own rubber-band powered wind-up locomotives from a big box of bits and bobs. At the end of the workshop, we'll race our creations in a wind-up steam train Grand Prix. There will be prizes galore!
Haven't we seen you somewhere before?
Yes! Last year we ran the Stop Motion Commotion workshop where we made an animation in an hour. You can see the results here:
How was Indietracks last time? Any interesting stories?
It was brilliant. Our highlight from last year was doing our workshop, the people who joined in were ace – we wish it could have been longer! Other highlights include: Allo Darlin on Friday, who were ace; Steve (Jeanie’s husband) becoming a known felon to the security guards for trying to sneak some cans of Guinness in – they checked him every time he went past, and Indiepop bingo (we’ll teach you how to play if you like)...
Can't wait to see the rockets - see you at the weekend!
