.:: Wind Auger ::.
By Robert Brasington
DESCRIPTION: The Wind Auger is a spinner that rotates in all planes as long as there is wind. It is constructed in ripstop nylon and a combination of carbon and fibreglass rod. It has a heavy duty ball bearing swivel. The workshop is demonstrating the use of converting flat pieces of fabric and sewing around a curve. When put onto a rigid frame the flat pieces become a 3 dimensional sculpture. Workshops in the past have chosen colour ways involving up to 3 different colours with a black base. The spinners can be used on a pole, line or for house decoration.
SIZE OF KITE: 1450mm high x 600mm in diameter.
DURATION OF WORKSHOP: 8 hours.
COST: $85 Ausd.
GENERAL COMMENTS: The Auger is a good all round kinetic piece with a wide range of uses. Due to its originality, there is a high satisfaction level on completion. All hardware is supplied and relevant panels are pre-cut to save time in the workshop. Importantly once one of the six blades is completed in the workshop, the rest can be completed at a later date and final assembly is straight forward. That means, if necessary, the workshop time can be reduced to ½ a day.
Participants are welcome to pre-choose colour ways prior to the workshop.
