Community programme Transported has teamed up with Lincolnshire Library Service to deliver a series of free wire sculpture workshops from a mobile library.

The Faceless Arts project will travel around south Lincolnshire and its artists will help residents use brightly coloured aluminium wire to create a wide range of individual sculptures.

These sculptures can be created in a few minutes or can be completed over a number of mobile library visits and examples include small flowers, creatures and figures.

You can make a number of different sculptures over the weeks, helping you to develop your skills.

The finished pieces will contribute to a touring exhibition in a mobile library unit, before being available for you to collect to take home to keep.

The workshops will take place on the same library route throughout June, July and August and displayed in the mobile library in September.

The sessions follow a series of successful silk painting workshops with Faceless Arts from the mobile library in the summer of 2015.

The workshops are free and open to all ages. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Booking is not required.

Tony Wade, artistic director of Faceless Arts, said: “‘We are really looking forward to working with Transported and the Lincolnshire mobile libraries service again.

“After the success of last year’s Open Book project, and the silk painted book marks, we are hoping for similar success with our wire sculpture project.

“Sculpting with aluminium wire can produce beautiful results surprisingly quickly and we hope many people will attend the workshops in and around the Mobile Library.”
