Artists Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan are creating one of their impressively scaled cardboard sculptures for the opening of the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ expanded building in late 2022.

As part of a project titled Making it Home, the Art Gallery will hold a series of hosted workshops between April and September where visitors are invited to make their own cardboard ‘dream homes’, which may become part of the Aquilizans’ sculpture. 

Drop by the studio space on lower level 2 on Wednesdays between 5.30pm and 8.30pm or weekends between 11.30am and 1.30pm to find out if you can take part in that day’s workshops.

All materials and instructions are provided.

Numbers are strictly limited and there are no advance bookings.

More workshop dates will be announced. Check back for further details.
