    Event description

    Join artist Tom Buckland for a 2 hour workshop using recycled cardboard to sculpt a three dimensional free standing bird. These birds are easy to make and full of character and personality. This is a great introduction to basic sculpture techniques and a wonderful way to utilise recycled materials. Workshop participants will take home their own handmade bird! Sculptors of all ages are welcome.

    While sculpting their own bird, workshop participants can be inspired by Tom Buckland's temporary installation Flock which will be located outside the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery and around the Wollundry Lagoon Cultural Precinct. These larger-than-life and delightfully whimsical birds are inspired by the diverse birdlife in the Wagga Wagga area.

    Tom Buckland is an artist who deals in a correspondence of worlds. By examining the present and the past, they construct portals to alternate futures yet to be explored. Working with recycled materials such as cardboard and salvaged electronics, Buckland creates playful, interactive and experimental installation, video and performance work that invites the audience to embark on a journey of discovery, transporting them to other dimensions across space and time provoking introspection about their own existence and the world they inhabit.
