Join our Eco-Arts initiative in the creation of a snake sculpture for the Year of the Snake!
Artist Alastair Heseltine will lead five half-day sessions at the Firehall Arts Centre Courtyard and teach skills on working with natural materials, including green willow. The snake sculpture workshops are part of a series of events to engage with community members celebrating the lunar new year. The resulting art works will be installed at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden.
Participation in the workshops is free but places are limited – please register
The snake will be created at the Firehall Arts Centre Courtyard (Cordova and Gore – entrance off Gore) 1:00 – 5:00 pm Monday through Friday from January 14-18 (Wednesday’s session is 9am-1pm).
Participants can register for one or more workshops, but please let us know if you register and then cannot make it, as space is limited to a maximum of 15 participants.
