Sculpture and Lantern Workshops
As part of the Queens Baton Relay event The Cassowary Coast Regional Council is partnering with Mission Beach Cassowaries and the Friends of Ninney Rise to create large Cassowary Coast Creature sculptures to welcome the baton runners to Mission Beach on March 17th 2018.
The artworks are being created at a series of workshops being held at Ninney Rise under the tutelage of well known art and drama teacher Jan Davies. Children and adults are encouraged to work together on their projects with help from local artists Sally Moroney, Nina Dawson, Penny Bell and Liz Gallie.
The creations will be paraded again at the 2018 Cassowary Festival's 'Drumming of Cassowaries' parade on 30th June adding to the vibrant cassowary sculptures made with a RADF grant for last years even, also under Jan's guidance.
