Assemblage at Twilight: Sculpture Workshop
Get creative and make your own assemblage sculpture in this intimate twilight workshop led by leading Melbourne-based artist Meredith Turnbull. Taking inspiration from more than 100 artworks by renowned Australian sculptor Robert Klippel, currently on show in ASSEMBLED: The Art of Robert Klippel, you’ll learn the fascinating art of assemblage, meet a remarkable maker, and enjoy wine, cheese and exclusive after-hours Museum access as you create your own piece to take home.
Suitable for people of all skill levels, you’ll experiment with different methods of combining and fixing found objects and materials, explore the art of assemblage, and engage your smartphone to capture your creation in motion.
All materials provided – feel free to bring along your own collection of small plastic or metal objects to incorporate into your artwork. Please wear enclosed shoes.
TICKETS: $30 Adult / $20 Museum Members and Concession (Student, Pension & Healthcare card holders). Includes workshop, exhibition entry, a glass of wine from TarraWarra Estate and cheese from Yarra Valley Dairy.
