Defence Families Sculpture

Applications Now Open

The Cuppacumbalong Foundation has scholarships available that allow two people (an adult and a child) to attend a Family Sculpture course conducted by Tharwa Valley Forge. This program is open to the immediate families of current and former serving members of the Australian Defence Force living or working in the ACT.

These scholarships have been made possible by your donations to The Cuppacumbalong Foundation and a Veterans Grant from the Community Services Directorate of the ACT Government.

When you donate to The Cuppacumbalong Foundation, you have the option of choosing which cohort your money will go towards.

All donations $2 and over are tax deductible.

This is a one-day basic course designed to bring family members together to work on a garden sculpture project. The projects are designed to be something that will last a long time and provide an ongoing reminder of what you achieved together. It is suitable for children aged 10-14 years and adults.

More details on the course and it’s contents may be found here.

At the end of the course, the family group will have produced a 70cm spherical garden sculpture formed out of shapes they have chosen from this catalogue.
