Take a respite from the digital age and step back in time on this unique field trip to the studio of an antiquarian horologist.

Join us for an introduction to the art of guilloché using the Rose engine and Straightline machines -- hand-operated engineering marvels from the legendary Bulova watch factory. In this intimate workshop, students will create their own one-of-a-kind guilloché pendant necklace or spinning top (bring a pal and have a duel!).

In addition to creating, field trippers will have the opportunity to explore the studio (the only one of its kind in North America) and play with a drawing machine, mechanical optical illusion slides and a gear loop toy. If you have an interest in engineering, design or history - this is the field trip for you!

Nico Cox has studied Swiss, American and British horology for over a decade and is a certified Antiquarian Horologist, AKA a clock and watchmaker who specializes in the conservation and restoration of antique automata and mechanical musical objects.  As owner and operator of Memoria Technica, she is passionate about sharing these heritage crafts.  When she isn't busy at work, you will find her writing a new book about her craft to be published in 2019 by Penguin Press.
