Week 1: Wed 31 Jul – Fri 2 Aug, 10.30am to 12.30pm
Collaborate with artist Flora Duley to create beautiful clay forms, sea beads and suspended sculptural mobiles inspired by the sea, breeze, ripples and waves.

Week 2: Tue 6 Aug – Thur 8 Aug, 10.30am to 12.30pm
Explore the ripple effect of energy and ideas with artist Camilla Brendon, and make positivity charms and words to spread throughout the community.

Week 3: Mon 12 Aug – Wed 14 Aug, 10.30am to 12.30pm
Work with artist Josh Bilton to explore the weight of endangered birds through sculpture, costume and storytelling. We’ll be thinking of the movement of a ripple poetically as the sharing of weight, where a stone shares its weight with water and changes its form, or the air shares its weight with the water and changes its movements.

Week 4: Tues 20 Aug – Thur 22 Aug, 10.30am to 12.30pm
Work with artist Amelia Tan to explore kinetic sculpture, sound and reverberations. Create obstacle courses for balls, marbles and wheels, and make instrument-like objects to use in a collaborative large-scale installation.
