Contribute to the How To Draw a Tree Community Environmental Sculpture Build

Posted on Tuesday, April 23rd, 2024

On Wedneday, April 17th U of G students, staff, faculty and community members gathered for a collaborative stick weaving project to explore placemaking and community building. Led by KW weaver and sculptor Agnes Niewiadomski and Guelph interdisciplinary artist Dawn Matheson, participants were guided through how to weave together natural materials into a sculptural piece of art. All of the materials were gathered from winter pruning at the U of G Arboretum

The sculpture will remain standing for some time as a temporary art exhibit that is open to everyone. Drop by to the "How to Draw a Tree" Wellness Circle on the southwest corner of Johnston Green to have a look and add to the sculpture as you feel inspired to - materials are available on-site and no experience is necessary!
