Artslab with Artist Andrew Bearnot

(ages 13–18)

Fri, Mar 16 / 4–6 pm

Andrew Bearnot

Join Andrew Bearnot to explore the history, chemistry, and poetics of candy as an artist’s material. Following an introduction to basic techniques of pulling, spinning, blowing, and casting sugar, participants will experiment with these methods to sculpt edible candy creations.

A self-described materialist with a background in materials science and traditional craft media, Andrew Bearnot explores the aesthetic potential and technical intricacies of the material world. He is interested broadly in technologies of making and specifically in craftsmanship as a way of both encoding and producing knowledge. His practice focuses on the matter and material culture of the everyday, questioning how the familiar can become unfamiliar, and how objects come into and out of being.
