    Event description

    AKA “I spent hours surfing the net and I vomited out a collage onto my plate”

    Learn how to do photo transfers onto homewares with Bonnie Huang and transform pre-loved ceramics with a collage of poetry and nostalgic clip-art images to give the unused objects new life. Reflecting on teenage boredom, this workshop is an invitation to return to the explorative mentality of net-surfing and spending hours browsing on Pinterest or internet archives collecting curiosities. What are we if not the images and objects we collect and curate in our digital worlds and lived surroundings? Bring a pre-loved plate or homeware and take home a new artwork.

    A limited supply for plates and homeware will be available for those who do not have one to bring! 

    Who is artist Bonnie Huang? 

    Bonnie Huang is a multi-disciplinary artist playing and creating with dreams and textures on Dharug land. They aim to create intimate yet subversive spaces for reflection on desire and belonging – reflecting on how memory and culture informs the construction of self-identity and communities. Underpinning their practice is the embracing of childishness, clownery, and chaos to hopefully offer a sacred perspective to view love and human experience. They are an artist of Parramatta Artists’ Studios 2024 Granville Studios Program, PAS Open 2023, and were awarded the USU Creative Awards Prize from Verge Gallery in 2021. Recent exhibitions include Pari, Verge Gallery, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Blacktown Arts Centre and Firstdraft.
