Sculp­ture master­class

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Wim­mera res­i­dents can learn sculp­ture tech­niques from Can­berra-based Scot­tish artist Lucy Irvine dur­ing a master­class in Hor­sham on Sun­day.

Irvine will use ev­ery­day ma­te­ri­als such as card­board, news­pa­per and mask­ing tape to cre­ate a wo­ven skin.

She will experiment with forms that shift, make con­nec­tions with their sur­round­ings and ac­ti­vate space.

Hor­sham Re­gional Art Gallery di­rec­tor Adam Hard­ing said he was ex­cited to wel­come Irvine to the re­gion.

“Lucy is one of the artists from our En­meshed ex­hi­bi­tion, which fea­tures wo­ven art­works from Ararat Re­gional Art Gallery’s col­lec­tion,” he said.

“Com­mu­nity mem­bers will have a chance to do a hand­son master­class with Lucy on Sun­day and ex­plore her sculp­tural tech­niques.

“Oth­er­wise, peo­ple can just come and share af­ter­noon tea with Lucy and hear about her amaz­ing sculp­tural works that are in­vad­ing pub­lic spa­ces around Aus­tralia.”

The master­class will run from 1pm to 2.30pm in the Hand­bury Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre, with a ‘meet the artist’ ses­sion in the gallery from 3pm to 4.30pm.

The master­class costs $45, in­clud­ing ma­te­ri­als, and is limited to 12 adults.

Peo­ple can call 5382 9575 or email [email protected] au to book for the master­class or RSVP for the free ‘meet the artist’ ses­sion.

The Hor­sham gallery will fea­ture En­meshed: Wo­ven art­works from the Ararat Re­gional Art Gallery Col­lec­tion un­til March 4.
