Jester here, I have been invited to run a 2 hour hands on lockpicking workshop in the Science Gallery as part of their SECRET Exhibition on the 10th and 15th of September 2015. The first date sold out quicker than I would get around to putting up a blog post, so allow me to tell you about the 2nd one.
The event description is on the Science Gallery website is HERE. In the 2 hour session I will include 30 minutes of presentation slides showing the inside of a lock, and how we manipulate the lock without the use of a key. I will also show examples of other types of locks that you might see on a regular basis, and the possible insecurities of these locks. This is followed by us giving lockpicking a go ourselves. The Science Gallery were kind enough to supply locks and lockpicks for the session, but I will also bring along some of TOG’s collection from the Ha’penny Bridge.
If you are interested, I have placed the booking form below, or please jump over to the Science Gallery booking page HERE and grab yourself a place
