Make your own Medals to Celebrate the London 2012 Games at Enginuity (17th April 2012)

Join a drop-in workshop to design and make your own pewter cast medals to celebrate the London 2012 Games at Enginuity, near Ironbridge, Shropshire during the half-term holiday between Saturday 2nd and Sunday 10th June. The daily Marvellous Metals sessions will run from 10.30am until 3.45pm and cost £2 per medal for materials plus admission.

Continuing the Olympic theme, you can also see CORE at Enginuity, the giant generative digital art exhibition by Kurt Hentschlager, which is part of the London 2012 Festival. And there are plenty of opportunities to play with the huge hands-on exhibits to discover how everyday things work. Find out how to control a ‘river’ to generate electricity, pull a 10 ton locomotive, build an earthquake-proof tower and challenge a robot.

Open 10am to 5pm Enginuity is one of the Ironbridge Gorge Museums.
