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. Our installations can provide a site for dance, perfomances, storytelling and imaginary play.

“Meet Bud and Buddy Delight, who wake from sleepy hibernation to discover a delightful, enticing world that has appeared around them. These curious, playful characters reveal the dance that comes from within them, inspired and motivated by their new world. They spin, ping and fling, inviting children join them in their dances and creating an outdoor playground full of wonder, joy and delight.”
“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 touring installations and performances are places of wonder to explore. They are accompanied by learning resource activity packs. Using the latest technologies we also make bespoke immersive experiences for arts organisations.
We do STEAM workshops for children under 10 years old and have free educational resources. Our Create@home series of arts and crafts activities and learning resource packs connects to the themes in our installations.

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!
