Make a Kinetic Mobile by hand, using laser-cut materials at FLAX-LAB

Featured Image


In this workshop, we’ll consider the elements that make a mobile come together as a harmonious whole: colour, shape, size, movement and space.

We’ll guide you through testing different gauge wires and threads, and creating a mobile structure. Then, using our FLAX-LAB laser cutter, we’ll design decorative pieces and cut them onto card and acrylic, with the option of adding vinyl-cut shapes. As you assemble your mobile, you’ll be testing the position of the cut pieces, tweaking the wire supports, adjusting the overall height, fine-tuning each piece’s rotation, so that your mobile comes together as a balanced, moving sculpture.

Designed to be a fun and experimental session, you’ll take home your own completed mobile.

This mobile-making workshop is hosted at FLAX-LAB, the Flax Art Studios’ digital fabrication lab in Belfast city centre.
