Sustainablity & Craft at IKN Masterclass

As we are struggling to cope with our consumption waste, carelessly disposing it into the atmosphere, land and ocean, we ran a masterclass at Institut Kraftangan Malaysia with British Council Arts exploring the relationships between arts and crafts and sustainability. Students gather surplus, waste and biodegradable materials found around their homes and studios and develop ideas how they may be incorporated into their work. This session is developed by British Council Arts Malaysia under the #CraftingFutures program.
