‘Just because you can’t see something, doesn’t mean it isn’t there.’
Willard Wigan has a unique ability — to create art so tiny that it cannot be seen with the naked eye. His sculpted figures, which can only be seen properly through a microscope and are roughly the size of half a full stop, can only be described as mind-boggling.
What? A Talk from Micro Sculpture Artist, Willard Wigan
When? Thursday, 28 June 2018 at 6.30 pm
Booking info: Spaces are limited for this event; email firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your place.
Join us at Bowcliffe Hall to marvel at the sheer intricacy of Willard’s sculptures and listen (in awe) as he explains how they are created, from using the webs of money spiders to create ships sails, or plucking microfibres from the air as they float past in order to build his sculptures. Willard works between his own heartbeats, in the quietest hours of the night to create artwork that is, frankly, hard to contemplate.
Willard was given an MBE in 2007 for his services to art and he currently holds the Guinness Book of Records for the World’s smallest sculpture. He has artwork housed at Buckingham Palace and has been a keynote speaker during a TED World Conference.
Willard is a wonderful and amusing storyteller, and we are absolutely delighted he has agreed to come and speak at our Drivers’ Club Members’ Evening. During the evening, Andy and the team will be serving some delicious food on the house and running the bar.
Unfortunately, we can only have a maximum of 80 guests so please reply to Laura Shinkfield at email@example.com as soon as possible.
