Tropical Steampunk Upcycled – By Create More at the Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre.
During June to August, the Cairns public were invited to come and create artworks using reclaimed materials as part of the 2020 Tropical Steampunk Upcycled workshops.
Cairns Regional Council Community Events generously funded six workshops with three of Cairns’ favourite artists; Hayley Gillespie, India Collins and Adrian Wolf. Well attended by enthusiasts from seven to seventy five year olds, these free workshops resulted in a variety of pieces including woven garlands, lanterns, Lost and Found Puppets and a collective piece of a large skeleton style Octopus.
Supported by the Committee for Waste Reduction and produced by Create More, the workshops were all about locals getting crafty, learning some new skills and making some fun creations out of reclaimed materials.
Come and see an exhibition of selected items in the Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre.
