Contemporary Art – Down and Dirty
Term 1: with sculptor Colin Langridge

Knock off work, grab a glass of wine, and spend an evening getting to know a living artist at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG)! Adults-only, hands-on sessions for any educator wanting to develop their creative side. No experience necessary.

Dr Colin Langridge is best known for creating coopered wooden vessels and has recently begun extending this technique to materials such as polystyrene and rubber. His practice reflects his interest in the relationships we form with things, particularly how we determine what a 'thing' is. He has won several awards, has completed public art commissions, and his work is held in private, public and international collections. Colin teaches casually at the Tasmanian School of Art and works as Program Coordinator at Contemporary Art Tasmania.

In this workshop Colin will invite you to create a three-dimensional coopered artistic form.

Time: 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm.
Cost: $20 per person, refreshments and all materials provided.
