Twelve creative workshops will run during the lead up to the 11th annual Sculpture by the Sea, Cottesloe exhibition on Fridays and Saturdays throughout February. These hands on, ‘drop-in’ workshops give families the opportunity to meet and work with a Sculpture by the Sea exhibiting artist and local WA resident Annette Thas.
Annette has used recyclable materials in her recent work (such as old toys and fabrics), transforming what might ordinarily be considered as discarded waste into beautiful sculptures inspired by the idea of environment and identity and its evolving elements. The workshops encourage using recycled materials.
Children, of all ages, together with their parent/carer are invited to work with the artist to manipulate and transform paper from books, newspaper and magazines into creatures and plant life using simple techniques like scrunching, folding and tearing.
Much of the work the children and families create will be developed into a large collaborative artwork to be displayed at Cottesloe Central Centre as a celebration of community involvement. We look forward to seeing you there!
