Cancelled - Make Together (Bersama) Fun Food Sculptures

When

Saturday 13 July from 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Cost

Adult + One Child: $50.00

Due to unforseen circumstances, this event has now been cancelled.

Heading into winter Australian Design Centre presents a series of workshops designed to make space for healing through making. A fast paced world with a relentless news cycle can feel overwhelming. Making may be the antidote you need to change pace. In this workshop participants will learn new skills for slow making by hand.

A fun food air-dry clay workshop to create fortune cookies and favourite foods in colourful clay. Family and friends are invited to meditatively make together with ceramic artist Jayanto Tan. This workshop requires no prior skills and all materials are supplied. Please bring a container or box to take home your creation.

Note: One child (8-12 years) can attend with an adult ticket purchase. 

About Jayanto Tan

Jayanto Tan is a visual artist who was born and raised in a small village in North Sumatra. An immigrant artist living in between the Gadigal and Wangal Country in Sydney, Australia and North Sumatra and Bali in Indonesia, his practice blends Eastern and Western mythologies with the reality of current events. Jayanto draws on the identity politics of his diaspora to express personal experiences of ‘otherness’ through ceramic sculptures, found objects, authentic recipes, performances and workshops.
