Making immersive & interactive experiences for young audiences

Installation art & performance design studio

Approach

Our designs are playful, sensory and interactive. We combine sensing technologies with crafts.

Our work considers the whole audience experience and how we can encourage interactivity and play, using all the senses to achieve an immersive experience. We specialise in making tangible interfaces that seamlessly combine traditional craft techniques with interactive technologies.

Outdoor Adventures

We are super excited to be starting a series of creative play sessions for children 0-4 years at Hyson Green library, Nottingham every Monday Morning in June 2022.

Liz Clark from Turn on its Head and Roma Patel from Makers of Imaginary Worlds have planned a FREE fun-filled exploration of nature, music, and movement. Come and have a sensory adventure with us, create special memories, and get great ideas for playing at home and outdoors.

Research shows that “children that engage in activities outside… are involved in more active play, have higher levels of physical activity and that this “contribute(s) significantly to children’s health”. Mackett/Paskins (2005).

Join us to create indoor and outdoors sensory learning experiences for your child.

“The interaction with light and music. I also like how you can feel the different textures of the coral. My daughters came on Saturday with my husband and I came back today and she showed me everything and how it worked.”

Our arts & craft workshops for early years can take place virtually or in person. We do STEAM workshops  for children under 10 years old. Our Create@home series of arts and crafts activities and learning  resource packs connects to the themes in our installations. 

The Gift

Storytelling is one of the greatest gifts that parents can give a child. In January 2021 we launched a free storytelling resource to support anyone who tells live stories to children. It contains videos, lots of tips, printable guides and digital tools to get you started on your own storytelling adventures!
