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.

Monthly meeting at the Forge

Saturday 14th July was a great day - cool and sunny and perfect for the bright fires of the smithy at Mont Delancey. The historical Mont Delancey Homestead was built around 1860 and is still owned by the Sebire family.

The estate hosts the smithy and a wood turning workshop.

Plus there’s a cafe so it’s a very active community. Paul Cacioli and Oskar Huecherig gave us an illuminating introduction to blacksmithing.

There are courses you can do and joining the Wandin Blacksmiths group gives working time on a Sunday. The group of sculptors came away inspired and heart warmed.

Thank you to Paul and Oskar
