Artist Greg Maddox has worked all over the world using many different artistic mediums for over 25 years. From 3D art installations in New York to the driftwood creations he now builds from his base in Northland, New Zealand.

No commission is too big to build. Tapatai’s largest driftwood art sculpture so far is a T Rex measuring 2.5m high x 5m long.

Shipping can be arranged nationally or internationally. We will deliver anywhere in the world.

2. Driftwood Sculpting Workshops

Tapatai driftwood sculpting workshop

Building on our work with Tapatai Driftwood Creations, Greg and his team offer tutorial driftwood sculpting workshops and team building workshops. They are popular with community arts groups, youth groups, coffee groups, corporate teams and organisational team building exercises.

We teach participants to build from driftwood, trash and recycled materials, always with a focus on recycling & upcycling. The workshops range in size from small and intimate to large and corporate, and from 1-3 days in duration, and are proving very popular.

The sculpting workshops can involve anything from individuals learning to build a piece of furniture or creating a garden sculpture to teams of people working together to build a big sculpture or art piece.

Planning a team building exercise? Why not build a garden or foyer sculpture or some funky outdoor furniture from recyclable materials found around the workplace, home, or local environment! Materials such as timbers, driftwood, broken pallets, plastic crates, and even No.8 fencing wire!

You may even qualify for funding. Find out here Creative NZ »
