Move It!

This workshop will be an introduction to kinetic sculpture made of metal. We’ll go over the basic principles of mechanical movement and use simple components to create sculptures that move. While the workshop will cover metalworking basics, including fabrication and welding, our focus will be the exploration of movement as a tool to enhance the expression of ideas through sculpture. All levels.
