“Imagine a twilit space. You walk along a path, your footfalls softened by leaf litter. Overhead trees, palms, and vines vanish into darkness, and around you grasses, ferns and fungi flourish. The space is filled with the sounds of creatures welcoming the dawn. But as you listen and look, you notice faces in the leaves, a hint of barcode in the bark. The soundscape slides into sounds that you almost recognize from city streets, and out again. Everything you see and hear is made entirely from salvaged materials.”
Fresh from a season at the Sydney Opera House, the Hastings’ own Frugal Forest is coming home to the Sea Acres Rainforest Centre. The exhibition will be open every day from 9 am to 4:30 pm, for a gold coin donation, until February. During the five-month exhibition, Frugal Arts Inc will be presenting a series of workshops for children and adults. Schools are able to book guided tours and craft activities: adults can learn practical re-use skills from Frugal craft-masters in friendly Saturday afternoon sessions over a cup of tea. More info can be found on our website, the Frugal Arts FB page or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org for a full list of workshop dates.
