Free Space Junk Laboratory at Belco Arts

When 29 Jan, 2022 12:00pm — 3:00pm Where 118 Emu Bank, Belconnen Website
Raid your cupboards and recycling bin for household junk and cardboard and bring it into the hangar at Belconnen Arts Centre to learn how to use it to build your own interstellar creations. Be inspired by Tom Buckland’s exhibition, Space Oddity and construct your own satellites, starships and space stations whilst recycling – the possibilities are endless! Participants will learn how to creatively reuse recycled materials learning basic model-making techniques and will leave the workshop with a creation of their own.

Designed for all ages and levels of ability, you can participate at your own level of comfort and are able to drop in at any point. The session will be as inclusive as possible and focus on coming together in a safe, shared space to enjoy some communal creative time.
