Dear Friends, 

A warm welcome from CMT HQ at home.   

All of our summer 2020 exhibitions are being postponed due to the Coronavirus Crisis.   We will update our exhibition listings  as soon as new dates are scheduled. 

As we can’t access our exhibits right now we have taken the opportunity to develop a new pegboard tinkering kit for understanding mechanisms.  We have started a new mailing list for makers please sign up to this if you want to be updated on the progress of this kit and other making projects, workshops etc. 

Paul Spooner has been busy creating small limited editions of automata to fundraise for charity.  

Last month we sold the first edition, 24 Agreeing Cats,  in less than 2 hours. 100%  of the proceeds  (£949.38) went to The Trussell  Trust,  a UK food bank charity. 

Paul has produced two more editions, 26 Unlucky Cats with 100% of proceeds going to the Trussell Trust, and 5 Fools to support CMT, with 10% proceeds going to the Trussell Trust.  

There are minimum prices for both of these, so please pay more if you are able to.  

This will help CMT to keep working while our exhibitions are behind locked doors, and give much needed support to The Trussell Trust at this difficult time. 

Thank you so much for your support

Wishing you well, 

Sarah Alexander
