    Workshop | Assemblage with Miguel Aquilizan

    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    Join Platform artist Miguel Aquilizan for a free-form sculpture workshop. Learn about the art of assemblage as he shares his personal creative process, his philosophies on sculpture making, and his tips and techniques.

    As a sculptor, Aquilizan is intuitive in his inquiry, improvisational in his approach, and inventive in his use of diverse materials. He attributes part of his love of objects and materials to his upbringing in the Philippines. 

    Using a range of found objects and repurposed materials, participants will be guided to make their own sculptures. Materials will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring along their own found objects to create a uniquely personal work.


    We are committed to making the IMA accessible to people of all abilities, their families, and carers, as well as visitors of different ages and different backgrounds.

    The gallery entrance is on the ground floor of the Judith Wright Arts Centre, on Berwick Street. There is wheelchair access and an accessible toilet with baby changing facilities also located on the ground floor, and we welcome guide and support dogs.

    If you plan to attend this event and have specific support needs we can accommodate, please contact, call (07) 3252 5750, or ask our friendly staff on-site. Read our full access information for visitors here.
