Claudia has been facilitating programs for over 20 years throughout Australia for schools and communities.
'"I dream big and create with passion. Everything is always possible. I love to share my skills and experiences and to see lightbulb moments within participants when you deliver new methods creating with recyclables. For me, that is one of the most rewarding parts of fostering creativity.
I have developed a deep understanding of the importance of fostering creativity and creative thinking. This has enabled me to develop and produce innovative programs using waste and recyclables that have been well received from both clients and industry peers".
Claudia is available to facilitate purposeful programs that promote creative experimentation
and explore contemporary
ideas with waste and recyclables.
Programs can be tailored to suit most age groups and the content is flexible enough to allow for intensive delivery or delivered over a number of weeks.
If you are interested in a creative experimentation program that promotes creative thinking through play and exploration with recyclables, please get in contact with Claudia.
“I have always been excited to work with practitioners and creative professionals willing to share their knowledge, expertise and wisdom with young art students, Claudia Williams embodies this wholeheartedly! I have repeatedly booked Ilani Creative to work alongside Year 9 and 10 Art students on their wearable art Units. Claudia is highly engaging and imparts expert practical skills and industry knowledge, insights, and experiences in her delivery of workshops and artist talks. She tailors her delivery, content, and resources in line with Australian Curriculum and teacher needs; in her workshops there is always time for experimentation and play with unusual materials, techniques, and processes. Finally, Claudia builds authentic rapport with students and schools, working professionally and with care to enhance students creative learning experiences”

"Art of Wearable Waste"
"This workshop delivered By Claudia Williams was outstanding. Her Powerpoint presentation
"It has been a delight to have Claudia come and work with our students on wearable art projects over the last couple of years. Her wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry leaves the students in awe. Claudia’s hands on approach is highly effective and efficient, often on a tight time frame with the incursion workshops, students get a real sense of accomplishment and great starting points to build on. Her expertise in design elements to emphasise repetition and texture coupled with her use of materials to promote sustainability, recycling and upcycling aligns beautifully with the goals within our art classroom"
