Dunstable Grand prix

Storyteller, artist and car enthusiast Chris Dobrowolski will be in your library creating a new art project called Selfie Slot Car Championship, in homage to the 1970s heyday of model-making and Scalextrix. Chris will be turning the top floor of Dunstable Library into a model-making den where you can create your own model of your family car, and then race it in the Selfie Slot Car Championship event on Saturday, 5 March.
“If you love model-making, cars, Scalextrix, the Grand Prix, experimenting, making, getting things to work and anything in-between, come have some fun and help create Selfie Slot Car Championship” said Chris. “It’s a great project for the family. You’ll need to have a car or access to one as we’ll be taking photos of your car during the workshops and then creating a model of your car to race in the main event.” 
Model-making workshops will take place during the half-term school holidays:
  • Monday 15 February, 10:00am-midday and 3:00-5:00pm
  • Tuesday 16 February, 10:00am-midday and 3:00-5:00pm
  • Wednesday 17 February, 10:00am-midday and 3:00-5:00pm
  • Thursday 18 February, 3:00-5:00pm
  • Friday 19 February, 10:00am-midday and 3:00-5:00pm
  • Saturday 20 February, 10:00am-midday and 3:00-5:00pm
The workshops are free to take part but booking is essential as numbers are limited. The main event (Saturday 5 March, 10:00am-4:30pm) will take place with qualifiers in the morning and the final race event in the afternoon. 
To book email, call Dunstable Library on 0300 300 8056, or drop in and book your places on the workshop – a maximum of four per family.
