Losing Marbles

I've long been fascinated by marble runs. I dream of building a run that zigzags all the way round the kitchen. Sharing a small flat delays this dream from coming true, but I saw a fantastic opportunity to dream in the very best of playful company when designing a workshop to respond to the Artplay Exhibition.

Will the marble make it ... round the funnel, down the tunnel, along the moat, drop to the next funnel, pitter patter down, and through the maze to triumphant cheers from the waiting crowds? ... Yes, yes, yes!
