Another Strange Garden workshop is on next week
DUE to popular demand, the Mansfield High Country Festival will run a second Strange Garden workshop next week.
Following on from a succesful session at the Mansfield Kindergarten, the workshop will be run at the Mansfield Library next Tuesday, between 1pm – 4.30pm.
Strange Garden Sculpture is a unqiue take on turning recyclable materials into works of art.
Castlemaine based artist, Eliza-Jane Gilchrist, travelled to town earlier this month and spent the day with fellow artist Karen Pirie and students from the shire.
“This is a great way for primary school and kinder aged children to work together using recycled materials to create something visually stunning,” Ms Gilchrist explained during her last visit.
“It’s about teaching them that just because it isn’t made of precious things, doesn’t mean the end result isn’t precious.”
Those involved were delighted with the three dimensial cardboard creation, and the resounding success of the visit has seen the follow up workshop scheduled for next week.
Ms Pirie will host the Mansfield Library Strange Garden, sponsored by the Produce Store.
The initial Strange Garden piece will be on display as part of the Mansfield High Country Festival.
