Former Wagga resident Peter Worsley shines in sculpture world

For former Wagga resident Peter Worsley, creating sculptures is much more than a simple hobby. 

After a serious rugby union accident at Charles Sturt University back in 1987, the Ag College Old Boy was left a quadriplegic. 

Refusing to let the accident beat him, Mr Worsley went on to represent Australia successfully several times in rifle shooting at the Paralympic Games. 

Using a gantry and his own custom made tools to create the works, Mr Worsley is now gaining success in a much different world, creating works from scrap and new steel. 

“I always liked making things and it just gives you something to do on the weekends,” Mr Worsley said. 

“I love getting old bits and pieces and creating interesting sculptures – I always like to keep busy.”
