Industrial Textures of the Coal Loader

Be inspired to create your own photography or artwork from the material textures of one of the most significant industrial heritage sites on Sydney Harbour.

The Waverton Coal Loader is particularly interesting because of the combination of rock, sandstone, brick, steel, concrete and timber used in its construction. The textures and juxtapositions of these elements make ideal subjects for photography and other artwork.

Join North Sydney Council Historian Dr Ian Hoskins on a free walk around the site which will focus on the material detail of the Coal Loader and provide historical background on their use.

You do not need anything to take part in this event. However you may choose to bring a camera and/or sketchbook and mark-making materials, refillable water bottle and/or coffee cup.

Please wear closed-toe shoes and dress for the weather on the day.

Open to all physical and artistic abilities.
