Create your own solar system as you construct a miniature table and orrery under the guidance of the master of magical creations, John McRae. Named after Charles Boyle, Fourth Earl of Orrery (1676–1731), for whom such a device was made, the original orrery was made in in 1704 to approximate the movement of the planets. In this class, you’ll make a small orrery with planets made of semiprecious stone, as well as a beautiful miniature table to display it.
