Creative Cafe with Rusty Squid

10 November (Thurs) 7.30pm

Ages 18+


Unit 18 Albion Dockside Estate,

Hanover Place, Bristol, BS1 6UT


Join us for the next Creative Cafe, our bi-monthly space where we share some of the ideas and projects percolating among Puppet Place’s Resident Artist community. In November, Rusty Squid will reflect on their summer projects. They will talk in depth  about the development, process, fabrication and public interaction of their Engaging interactive robotic creature: THE MOTH.

This talk will be led by

Charlotte Biszewski (print-making, puppet fabrication, creative technology),

George Rumney (animation, design), and

Nick Willsher (costume design & fabrication, software development) will open the door on the ground-breaking iterative processes and ethos that Rusty Squid nurture to produce awe-inspiring and emotional connections with audiences.

Charlotte, George and Nick were all participants in Rusty Squid’s Intern Programme.

As always the talk will last for approximately 20 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A session.

A must for all robotic, software, design, engineering and puppetry fans. We very much hope you can join us!


Creative Cafe is curated by the Puppet Place community. The next Creative Cafe will be in January 2017

Places are limited, so please do book early.
