Full Workshop Fee and Material Fee $80/$65 Health Care Card
With passion for the environment, and inspiration from the Australian bush, the workshop will explore the processes of construction with simple found materials, such as sticks and twigs. Sculptural works will be developed with a natural sense of growth and structure by using the sticks/twigs in combination with various binding materials.
Check out these twig sculptures made by Pete Rush for inspiration.

Artist Pete Rush
Artist jeweller/maker and teacher for many years, I studied at RMIT University and hold a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Fine Art, Master of Art (Fine Art) Degree, and a Diploma of Fine Art in Gold and Silversmithing.
I exhibit regularly and my work ranges in scale from jewellery to large sculptural works.
My recent work explores the relationships between artifacts and identity, including experimentation into the theatrical narratives of dolls/puppetry and masks.
I have been an artist in residence and workshop instructor at numerous schools, universities, arts organisations and galleries. I am a former gallery director and have extensive experience working on community arts projects.
