Found Objects Transformed into Sculptures

Take part in the Pushing Boundaries Symposium and register in a five-day workshop led by Lyndal Osborne. Over the course of five mornings, Lyndal will inspire and guide you in creating three sculptural projects: a free-standing sculptural topography, a three-dimensional form that develops from the collection of materials that you wall-hung a table or wall hung box structure compartmentalized and filled with collections.
