Southlanders wanting to make their mark in south Invercargill will get their chance at an art workshop this weekend.

The workshop, funded by Creative Communities, will be hosted by sculptors Stuart King and John Wishart tomorrow as part of South Alive's rejuvenation of south Invercargill.

Project facilitator Kathryn Mitchell said participants in the workshop would be making marks and impressions in clay that related to their experiences of south Invercargill.

Wishart and King would incorporate these marks in a series of tiles, which would eventually be collected into a collage-like public artwork on the wall of Bin Inn, on the corner of Grace and Ness Sts, Ms Mitchell said.

"The end result is going to be a huge collaborative public artwork."

King said those at the workshops would be making marks which reflected a Southland identity, linking the city and the landscape.

The workshop will be held at the Southern Institute of Technology tomorrow, between 10am and 3pm.

Participants need to wear clothes appropriate to working with clay and casting plaster, and no open shoes.
