Are You Ready To Reimagine Waste?
Artist, Designer and Educator, Claudia Williams divides her time between educating and creating with recyclables.
"Everything is always possible. I love to share my skills and experiences and to see lightbulb moments within students and participants when you deliver new methods creating with uncommon materials. I call it, reimagining waste. For me, that is one of the most rewarding parts of fostering creativity.
Claudia has over 20 years’ experience as a mixed media artist. She has designed and created artworks for private commissions, public areas, and school-based projects, designed, facilitated and project managed workshops
for communities and schools around Australia.
Her studio process explores the use of recycled materials and pushing the boundaries with these mediums. The use of traditional craft methodologies within her works and her teachings helps to give her audience a new perspective of creating with recyclables and its value as a medium, not just a waste item.
Claudia has been a long time Flying Art’s Queensland Educator, touring regional Queensland communities to deliver art projects and grow community capacity through arts education and recently the project manager, creative director, artist and educator of large scale wearable art productions in Queensland, such as WAT and Dress the Central West.
The creation of one off unique wearable art garments for editorials, musicians, film, model portfolios and her wearable art hire line are always on the go in her Brisbane based studio.
Claudia works with brands and individuals when custom creating unique pieces and has a creative network of photographers, makeup artists and hairdressers that can assist in creating the total editorial fashion look when on location.
Claudia is available for shoots, runway shows, workshops, film, celebrities and communities.
