First come first serve basis.

WNCSC is thrilled to welcome Patrick Dougherty to the sculpture park to execute one of his large scale woven sculptures! This project has been generously provided by the tireless efforts of Liza Plaster and for that we are most grateful.

The nature of Dougherty's studio practice is one which includes the community to execute his internationally recognized works.  

We are looking for groups of 4 volunteers for 2 work sessions per day. Volunteers will work from 8-12 in the morning and from 1-5 in the afternoon.

FREE LODGING IS PROVIDED. The Patterson School Foundation has agreed to host volunteers from out of town at no charge in exchange for their help with this project. 

Volunteers will have the opportunity to interact directly with Patrick Dougherty. He will be guiding volunteers through his practice and will be working along side everyone.
