‍Meet your tutor

Huon Lui is a dedicated jewellery maker here in the heart of Sydney.

He became an integral part of the Gaffa community in 2018 when he joined as Gallery and Workshop Assistant. His connection with Gaffa runs deep, dating back to a time when he was a student learning from studio workshops, later having his own studio, and frequently attending Gaffa's art gallery openings.

‍Now, having come full circle, Huon is giving back to the community that once embraced him so warmly. Operating from his Sydney-based studio, Huon meticulously crafts each piece by hand, infused with passion. Huon's bespoke service offers the creation of made-to-order objects and artworks, establishing a profound bond between the crafted pieces and their owners.
