The Big Chiseller announces an open call to Professional Wood Sculptors to participate in Enniskerry’s Inaugural Wood Sculpting Festival. Professional Wood Sculptors (The Big Chisellers!) are being sought to to demonstrate and create an iconic wood sculpture – using chainsaws, chisels and other hand tools.
Sculptors will be paid per day at a fixed rate, depending on the scale of their proposed project;
Sculptures of less than approximately 1m squared : €150 per day (half day for preparation, 3 days of live sculpting during the festival period – 11-13th October)
Sculptures of larger than approximately 1m squared : €250 per day (half day for preparation, 3 days of live sculpting during the festival period – 11-13th October)
*Expenses & Travel Costs will be assessed on a case by cases basis
Sculptors should refer to the festival concept of REWILDING to create their pieces, which will be live sculpted from in-situ deadwood and naturally felled trees, over the course of the festival.
Please Note, the completed Tree Sculptures will be the property of The Big Chiseller Festival and establish Enniskerry’s Sculpture Trail.
