Unique craft for the school holidays
The McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park has joined forces with Baluk Arts for the upcoming September School Holidays, to offer a very special Children's Aboriginal Bush Sculpture Workshop.

In a three hour class, taught by local Aboriginal Artists, Lisa Waup and Yvonne Luke, children sculpt their very own creature using hay, wool and wire, which they can take home and admire.

The Children's Aboriginal Bush Sculpture Workshop will take place within the serene McClleland Gallery, positioned in Langwarrin just 40kms south of Melbourne CBD.

McCelland Gallery and Sculpture Park is filled with over 70 works by both local and international sculptors and artists in manicured outdoor gardens, and indoor exhibition spaces. Stop by the McCelland Gallery Cafe; a popular licensed eatery with beautiful views of the site's landscaped gardens and lake populated by local birdlife.

Baluk Arts is a non-profit Victorian Aboriginal arts organisation based in Mornington. Owned and operated by Aboriginal artists from Frankston, the Mornington Peninsula and wider south-east Melbourne, Baluk artists come from diverse Aboriginal backgrounds from all over Australia. To find out when Baluk Arts will be exhibiting works and holding future events or workshops, head to Baluk Arts website.

This special collaborative Children's Aboriginal Bush Sculpture Workshop, aimed at children aged 8 or 6 with adult supervision, will include all materials and a light afternoon tea.
