As part of the What We Consider Waste project I will be conducting a Free Biomaterial Making Workshop on June 11th at the Gecko Hall in Currumbin, QLD.
(139 Duringan St, Currumbin QLD 4223)
During this workshop participants will get their hands dirty, indulge with like-minded eco-activists and learn about the key elements of my practice - how/what food waste can be salvaged and utilised within the production of biomaterials (Bioplastics and Biocomposites). The objectives of the workshops will provide quality experiences for the local community; establishing the public's sensitivity towards materiality, awareness of non-conventional materials and the artist studio processes. These community-based aspects will also highlight the lack of bio and alternative materials in public spaces, and engage with specific sites and contributors to the project. While empowering participants with the knowledge to replicate and DIY biomaterial-making processes at home. Key outcomes of the workshops include knowledge sharing of new and innovative materials that can be employed in creative processes and otherwise to benefit our unique local environment.
