Every kid's dream is to live in a tree-house. From nailing planks of wood, to using branches and leaves to cover a portion of the tree.
Multi-award winning artist Patrick Dougherty creates the dream with his stick castle (see picture above).
As part of Fed Square's 10th Birthday Celebrations, Fed Square and Creative Production Services have commissioned this new work. Over the course of three weeks, Dougherty weaved more than ten tonnes of willow (collected from key water catchment areas) into an incredible sculpture using just gloves and a pair of secateurs.
Stickwork is the latest addition to Fed Square's Creative Program. Previous works included Theo Jansen's Strandbeest and Tape Melbourne by Numen/For Use.
Feel free to walk into the massive structure and closely look at the materials used for the walls to really appreciate the effort and creativity. To finally realize your childhood dream, this is an opportunity not to miss.
