Cocktail sticks come in bundles of 100, in boxes of 1000. I’m less sure how many mini marshmallows are in the litre buckets, but hopefully there will be enough… Whether your ambitions stretch to making a geodesic dome or a metre high Eiffel Tower, a javelin-throwing athlete or an alternative Olympic Torch, we’re looking forward to welcoming you to our sociable evening sculpture competition – aka the Javelin (see what we did there?). This is the latest event in the Talking Birds’ Decathlon and will take place at Coventry Artspace this Friday – 20th July – rounding off their day-long Artspace Hijack event. Talking Birds is hijacking the community room and will be giving it the fairy godmother treatment throughout the day to prepare it for an evening of chat and invention…

Bring a friend or two and register a team (of up to 4) to work together to build something magical using only cocktail sticks and marshmallows…there’ll be refreshments on tap, we’ll provide the materials and the space. And there will be a *magnificent* prize for the most interesting/imaginative/impressive sculpture – as judged by our tame *celebrity* judge.

Register teams from 5.30. Build starts at 6pm.

At Coventry Artspace, 16, Lower Holyhead Road, Coventry CV1 3AU.


See you there!
