Workshopping artwork for ecology, Goulburn/Broken/Murray

My residency in Nathalia ended its first week with a sculpture workshop which invited community members to a hands-on cardboard art-making day.

I thought I had asked too much of my participants initially, but they proved up to the task as the day went on and we had some very promising results by days end.

Internationally known artist Bill Kelly attended and kindly spent much of his day assisting with any creative problems which occurred, I am indebted to him.

Fun was had by all and it proves serious subjects can be approached in a light-hearted and friendly manner.

Getting a 2d material into a 3d shape is often not easy but my workshop participants approached the problems with an enthusiasm, wonderful to see.

Drying in the intense sun at day’s end were little creature beginnings….

With another week to go who knows what will eventuate? Our collaborative exhibition will take place in June so the heat will soon be on to get some finished work ready for showing.
