Hands-on ‘Stickwork’ workshop Friday with sculptor Patrick Dougherty at Ithaca Children’s Garden FridayPosted by cdc25 in Events, News, Video
Everyone — young and old — is invited to help create a large-scale ‘stickwork’ sculpture with artist Patrick Dougherty at the Ithaca Children’s Garden, starting at 9:30 a.m. Friday.
Dougherty, who has created more than 240 plant-based sculptures, delivered a Messenger lecture (video below) and other talks this week on campus. He uses a well-honed technique to bend, interweave and fasten together sticks and tree saplings, with the help of volunteers, to create an intricately woven network of natural materials that evoke images of nests, igloos, urns, cocoons, cones castles and beehives. In 2006 Dougherty, as a Cornell Council for the Arts artist-in-residence, created a complex array of sculptures that resembled primordial huts in Collegetown. (Read more in the Cornell Chronicle.)
The event is free and open to the public. Come on down and try your hand at stickwork.
