Earth Hour Sculpture in the Gardens

Saturday 28 March, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Unfortunately we have decided to postpone our Earth Hour Sculpture in the Garden event due to the current health concerns. Although we do not meet the criteria for banned events, we have decided to act responsibly and postpone the event to a later date.


Artists, established and aspiring, are invited to enter our inaugural Sculpture in the Garden exhibition and competition. As the centre piece for our Earth Hour event in March 2020, sculptures are to include 80% recycled materials. Prizes offered, including People’s choice. So work on something inspiring, enter the competition and bring your friends to vote on Earth Hour.

All entries now free as prizes have been donated.

Children’s Workshop

During our annual Earth Hour event on Saturday March 28 we will once again have our popular children’s art-based workshops. In keeping with the Sustainability theme, the children will work with well-known jeweller, teacher and artist, Tracy Hopkirk.

Some of the things that Tracy will show the children how to make, include sun catchers using old chandelier crystals for the sparkle, using tiger tail cable like what fishermen use as traces, and or fishing line. Using old vintage beads participants will make also beaded necklaces or bracelets from the recycled, upcycled beads and jewels!
These workshops are suitable for all children up to 12 years.
