Fiery Sun Sculpture Workshop

You might remember local artist Andy Greenacre from 2019’s First Light Festival, where he showcased his inventive artwork Sandscape, a durational sand sculpture made from the forms of waste packaging. Join Andy as he teaches us how to make modelling dough out of goods you may have in the kitchen, and how to transform your dough into a quirky fiery sun model! To join in, you will need:

  • – Water

  • – A paintbrush
