Regional Arts Victoria, Creative Victoria and Mallacoota Arts Council present Mallacoota Phoenix, a free sculpture workshop program with artist Jade Oakley.
The purpose of the workshops is to create 100 sculptures inspired by local bird species devastated in the bushfire, such as the Sea Eagle, Azure Kingfisher, Bower Bird and King Parrot.
The bird sculptures will be made from hand dyed silk and coloured anodised wire.
The sculptures will form a colourful installation at the MA space for the first anniversary of the devastating bushfire.
By coming together as a community to make something beautiful we will use art to aid healing in Mallacoota.
Students from Mallacoota P12 college will be making sculptures on 14, 15 and 16 December.
We would also like to invite the broader Mallacoota community to take part in art workshops on 26, 27, 29 and 30 December.
