Explore elements of movement, balance and light, and create your own dynamic mobile sculptures with artist Andrew Maize.

In this workshop participants will learn about the history of kinetic sculpture, and learn strategies and techniques of working with a variety of materials including wire, string, and paper to animate their very own mobile compositions.

This is a hands-on (the only way with mobiles!) crash course in the basics of how to design, build and balance mobiles. The goal will be to leave with an understanding of first principles and a prototype you can hang at home.
