We cooperate as an association to advance the practice of sculpture and the reputation and appreciation of sculpture and sculptors in the community. This is regardless of whether or not we make a living from sculpture and regardless of our preferred style or medium. To this end we support artists’ moral rights, we advocate a professional attitude to the production and presentation of work and encourage the artistic and intellectual stimulation of interaction amongst artists of all persuasions.

The May Meeting-Workshop

The May Meeting was a workshop expertly run by Andrew Bryant. A lot of us missed out for one reason or another - we have to hope that Andrew can be persuaded to repeat the exercise in the future.

Andrew was generous with his time and welding advice at his family’s property at Boneo on the Mornington Peninsula. Each visitor was given a hands on TIG welding trial, with personal advice from Andrew, followed by a demonstration of Plasma cutting and then were treated to home made cakes and a barbecue.
