I give lectures (6th form to adult) on this history of science, technology and medicine in London. I also give tours for small groups in London on a variety of historical characters from within these subjects. Their strange adventures and curious personalities make their stories surprising and entertaining. You don't need to be a scientist to enjoy them. The last two years I have been researching the history of engineering in Europe, aspects of which I can cover in lectures.
I make art inspired by science, often using everyday materials: drawing machines from bicycles, long-exposure pinhole cameras from aluminium cans, spherical sculptures from recycled waste, a guided tour of the Solar System by bike. I run workshops with these activities, and give public talks about my work.
