"MiO helped me sort out my life. I couldn’t do it without the support of MIO.
I’m preparing to be self employed as a furniture designer"

Making It Out is a local charity, based in Brighton and Hove. We work with people who are in need of structured day to day support to help them get their life back on track.
 

To do this we provide opportunities to develop employment ready skills, confidence and motivation within a creative making environment.


We design and make a wide range of artefacts and artworks, from intricate small scale pieces all the way to large public installations.

'EQUANIMITY'

A KINETIC SCULPTURE

FROM MAKING IT OUT

IMG_20201216_115909__01.jpg

'Equanimity' was designed for a private client by Sean Donoher, who was at the time our Artist in Residence. It was made in our workshop in at Portside Studios by our participants and staff. 

Based loosely on the work of Alexander Calder and developed in line with the client's brief, the kinetic nature of the sculpture mesmerises you with the prospect of an eternity of new shapes. 

Find out about how we made it and what we could make for you!
