Waste to Art

August 8, 2020, 10:00 am - August 9, 2020, 4:00 pm

  Waste To Art

Join award winning artist Al Phemister from the Yass Valley for a free two-day creative workshop turning waste into art. Discover how to recognise waste and rubbish that can be upcycled into art materials then learn a variety of techniques and processes to turn your upcycled materials into 3D art to take home and keep (or even use as a gift).

Even better enter your creative work into the Illuminate Wollondilly Waste to Art Exhibition and Competition, which inspires people to think differently about waste, litter and over consumption through creative thinking. Categories for the exhibition are Open: over 18 (including professional artists), Youth: 12-17 years, and Junior 7-11 years.  Prize pool of $2600.  Made possible by Wollondilly Council, the Environmental protection Agency and Southern Tablelands Arts.

A range of salvaged materials and all tools provided (you can bring some waste to transform as well)
