Design a Geometric or Abstract Flatlay with NancyDee Sculptures
1 March @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Clean Up Geelong – and Create Art in the Process
In the lead-up to Clean Up Australia Day on 3 March, you can create a flatlay from objects you find on Geelong’s streets or beaches, such as nails, bolts, bobby pins, plastic lids or drinking straws. NancyDee will help you create a geometric or abstract flatlay, then photograph and post it to Instagram, so that you can show your family and friends.
Bring whatever you find on the streets or beaches (preferably washed) to create your artwork, or choose from Nancy’s collection of trash waiting to be repurposed. When doing your search, take care – no sharps, and wear gloves. And please, pick up the rubbish that won’t upcycle into art and bin it!
The workshop is a drop in, so stay as long or as short as you want, any time between 2 and 4pm. No need to book.
The workshop facilitator, Nancy D Lane, creates quirky, imaginative wall sculptures entirely from the metal, wood, tiles and plastic she gathers from the streets. She has had two major exhibitions in Melbourne and one in Luang Prabang, Laos, and her works have appeared in numerous group exhibitions. She teaches workshops on creating art using found objects and holds seminars for artists about social media. She hopes her creative use of street trash will inspire others to refuse, reduce, repurpose, reuse and recycle.

Cost: Free (though Nancy can glue your flatlay into a permanent wall sculpture if you want to keep it. Ask her for a quote).
Before or after the workshop, take the opportunity to view the works by Nancy and other artists in the ‘Creativity Cluster’ exhibition at the Renew Geelong Concept Space, 107 Moorabool Street, in the Market Square Shopping Centre (which is also where the workshop is being held).
