Artist Anna Horne will lead participants in making cast concrete sculptures from everyday items.
In this workshop, South Australian artist Anna Horne will guide participants in making sculptures cast in concrete and plaster using moulds made out of unexpected everyday materials. Using the force of gravity to their advantage, participants will make objects that explore the materiality of concrete and visual concepts of light and heavy, soft and hard, familiar and strange.
