Sculpting some fun during Crush

STUDENTS from Isis and Gin Gin State High Schools were treated to a series of half-day sculpture workshops as part of the Crush Festival celebrations last week.

Vintner's Secret Vineyard artist in residence Andrew MacDonald guided students from Years 9 to 12 through the construction of sculptures from discarded and found objects.

Students only had a short amount of time to construct their artwork and came up with some interesting ideas including a crab, a flower, a bee and a bicycle.

A sculpture workshop for adults will be held on Saturday at the vineyard.

The finale event for the festival will be an exhibition of sculptures produced throughout the month and a poetry reading with Jan Facey and Jayson Russell from the Bundaberg Poets' Society.

The event will be held on October 31 from 3pm until 6pm at the vineyard in Childers.

For more vineyard event information, telephone 4126 1255.
