The Art of Tinkering
By Karen Wilkinson and Mike Petrich
Discover the wildly wonderful creations of 150 artists and tinkerers—a city made of toothpicks, a musical instrument powered by the ocean, a pop-up book that lights up. In The Art of Tinkering, you’ll get to know the creators of these marvelous works, find out how they create, and get inspired to start tinkering yourself.
The Art of Tinkering is a celebration of a whole new way to learn by thinking with your hands, working with readily available materials, getting your hands dirty, and, yes, sometimes failing and bouncing back from getting stuck. The Art of Tinkering offers a fascinating portrait of today’s maker scene, as well as beginner activities for you to try on your own. Make circuits out of playdough, film a time-lapse movie, fuse plastics into beautiful fabric, and much, much more.
