MAKE A WORKING CLOCK
Don't just change the clocks, make one!
Want a cool clock to match your room or maybe give as a gift?
We’ll show you how to design a large clock face, ready to put a clock mechanism in to.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS WORKSHOP
We’ll be using the technique called ‘decoupage’ to cover your large clock face with all sorts of fun and interesting papers (the trick is gluing them really flat!). We supply loads of cool coloured and patterned papers for you to use, but the best bit is adding your own to make your clock really personal to you. So you could print, cut out and glue on pictures of your favourite tv or book characters, football team, Youtube stars, bands, sports, hobbies…DISCOVER YOUR INNER GRAPHIC DESIGNER by creating numbers that both complement and stand out from your clock face (we’ve got ways of making sure you get the numbers in the right place on the dial). Then finally, choose the colour of your clock hands, put in the battery and ta-dah! you have a working clock!
OR HOW ABOUT using photos of your friends, pets or family to make a really personalised clock design? The possibilities for personalising your clock are endless.
SOME CLOCK THEMES MADE SO FAR:
Doctor Who, dinosaurs, Minions, Frozen, jungle animals, Top Gear, Star Wars, Ninja Turtles, safari, wedding anniversaries, outer space, Deadly 60, puppies, Minecraft, emojis, sharks, underwater, Pokemon, rockets, Manchester United, Matilda, Harry Potter, monsters, best friends, night sky, zebras, the Great Fire of London…!
RECYCLING your favourite magazines are really good for this project – take a look at the Horrible Histories clock we made by cutting up one of ours. Even up-cycling your favourite food wrappers in a cool way, makes a quirky clock theme. Go on, dive into the recycling box!
