Meet the Artist: Thomas Dambo and his Trolls (Ages 10-18)

May 6, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Do you have a young artist or woodworker who would like to learn from a world-renowned sculpture artist? Danish artist Thomas Dambo, who is building five trolls at the Gardens, all constructed from salvaged wood and other recycled materials, will offer a tour of these larger-than-life sculptures and a discussion of his design and building process.

Please note: In an effort to keep the group size small, this is a drop-off program. If your child would be more comfortable with you nearby, please contact Erika Huber at ehuber@mainegardens.org before the session to discuss options. If this session is full, please call (207) 633-8000 to be added to our waiting list.

Born in Odense, Denmark, Thomas Dambo lives and works in Copenhagen. Building and creating with wood since the age of five, Dambo has become one of the fastest-growing personalities in the Scandinavian art world. A self-labeled, “recycle art activist,” his trolls are on the list of the most significant attractions in Denmark and can be found worldwide, not only telling a story of sustainability, but one of global connection.
