The Eratz Fantasia Project

There are three upcycling craft workshops taking place at the Yarra Ranges Regional Museum in April and May, to coincide with the museum's current Eratz Fantasia Project display.

The Eratz Fantasia Project is a large and striking art installation by Melbourne-based artist Rachael Hallinan, using discarded plastic toys otherwise destined for landfill, to create a magnificent colourful forest.

The following low cost craft classes are designed to have visitors create art pieces using found objects, inspired by Rachael Hallinan's works:

School Holiday Workshop: Bits and Bugs

Inspired by the magnificent Ersatz Fantasia exhibition, children aged 5 - 12 are invited to join in with an upcycling craft class to create insects and bugs using found objects. Materials such as bottle tops, paper and cardboard can be used to create a bug-masterpiece.
