Join African Robots in making an electronic Majuru (Shona for Termite) with master wire artist Lewis Kaluzi and project lead Ralph Borland. We will be assembling several prototype Majuru kits from wire parts, motors and electronic components.

This is the latest insect prototype in the African Robots series. African Robots is a project to catalyse new forms of production in the street wire art scene, combining knowledge of handcraft, mechanics and electronics.
