Artslab with Artist-in-Residence Heechan Kim

Fri, Dec 13, 2019

Join Artist-in-Residence Heechan Kim and explore Hempcrete, a new sustainable building material created with hemp! Participants will create a pencil holder out of Hempcrete and paint it with natural pigments while discussing the applications for this material and eco conscious alternatives.

About Heechan Kim

Heechan Kim applies traditional craft techniques in new contexts to reimagine and explore outcomes, and challenge craft’s visual potential. In researching possible applications of Hempcrete in the production of functional objects such as tableware, Kim will explore broader questions of sustainable product design.
