Tyre Sculpture: No Time to Waste

FridaySaturdaySunday The Alchemist’s Playground

The sessions will include an introduction to processing and cutting tyres. You’ll learn how to attach tyres together and clad an armature structure with tyres and build features from tyre rubber. You will then learn to paint the finished piece using different painting techniques.

No Time to Waste Arts will be building 2 large tyre sculptures with children over the course of the festival. The giant insects will be made from scrap metal and waste tyres and painted using recycled paint. These insects will be installed amongst giant flowers created using plastic rubbish and leftover tyre scraps. You’ll be encouraged to get involved in building the sculptures, learning how to use tools and a range of different techniques to create sculpture from waste materials.
