What’s a stick? Stanley Stick inspired workshop

Michael West Gallery

What could you do with a bundle of sticks? Build a house for a little pig? Start a fire for
marshmallow roasting? Make a raft for a river adventure? There are so many things you
can do with a bundle of sticks if you just add a little imagination. But what if you only had
one stick? What could that simple stick become? A magician’s wand, a rock star’s guitar,
a sorcerer’s sword or an artist’s paintbrush?

Join Studio Wren to explore the endless possibilities of what happens when you mix a
stick, a spoonful of imagination and a sprinkling of crafty delights!
