RSA Cornwall: Let’s Build a Pipe Organ! Arts and Engineering in St Just Miners’ Chapel

Fellowship Event

 - 

St Just Miners' Chapel, Penzance

RSA Catalyst funding has just been awarded to the team at St Just Miners’ Chapel for their project Let’s Build a Pipe Organ! Arts and Engineering in St Just Miners’ Chapel.

Primary school pupils will rebuild a dismantled organ and put it into working order. They will learn about sound production, mechanical action and using tools. The project addresses the well-documented loss of design, technology (D&T) and engineering skills in the UK. These skills make an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.

This event will provide an opportunity to get your hands dirty, trying out some of the building activities we have planned for children. You will meet the project team and the experts who will communicate excitement about complex machines. You will see for yourself our aims of community cohesion through shared technical knowledge. The event will begin with introductions to the Chapel and the project team, a brief description of the project and then move to practical activities. There will be time to network and share ideas at the end. Refreshments will be provided.

If you have any access requirements or require any reasonable adjustments, please let the team know: [email protected]. Please also let us know if you have any dietary requirements or severe allergies.

Location: St. Just Miners' Chapel, Chapel Road, St Just, Penzance, Cornwall TR19 7LT
