Craft NSW celebrates Chinese New Year with Sheepshape
Artists Fran Watchel and Charlotte Drake Brockman have collaborated on a project called Ram. It is a life-sized sheep figure made entirely of corrugated iron and recycled metal, a celebration of Chinese New Year and the Year of the Sheep.

Ram is a part of a larger exhibition called Sheepshape, which will exhibit the works of four invited artists, including Watchel and Brockman; Denise Lithgow, who works with felted objects to create vessels; and Pauline Ryan, who has created animal figurines using ceramics. The exhibition will also feature works by Craft NSW's own craft workers, and will be held from Tuesday 3 February to Sunday 1 March 2015.

Craft NSW gathers the best craft workers together to combine rural Australian influences into diverse craft techniques, using wool, jewellery, glass, and wood in their creations.

Entry to the exhibition is free. Craft NSW is located on 104 George Street, The Rocks, and is open from 9.30am to 5.30pm everyday.
