Residency in a museum makers space that was one of the first industrialised factories in the country.

Victorian toys were used as a device to educate children and adults about the industrial revolution, science and engineering through play, movement & making.

We designed a series of paper toys as a kit of parts within a customised box & explored digital animation of objects in the museum that drew upon the stories within Derby Silk Mill. The kit of parts aimed to engage children in making & their heritage using their hands.
