Liam Herne is an artist from Watford, UK who predominately works with photographic media and video. Wordscape is an interactive installation that encourages creativity through art and words. Visitors and passers by will be asked to pick a word at random from a box and then draw a picture that represents that word with chalk on the exterior walls and floor of the walkway leading to Centenary Square Nambour. Wordscape’s aim is for the participants to become the artists and showcase their imaginations and creativity. All ages are welcome to take part and no artistic training is required.
Pom Pom Palace
Crafty Jane Little is a childrens craft facilitator, passionate about inspiring children to work creatively with their hands. She offers the Pom Pom Palace, an interactive art space in which children and their families can participate in making something amazing with yarn. In a workshop, with hands busy, ideas sprout and blossom into, something. There are hurdles to overcome, there are feelings to be expressed. And at the end of it all we take something amazing away, made with our own two hands. Where we sit, and make pom poms, finger knitting, spool knitting and other yarny crafts.
The event will run from 10am - 4pm.
