In this creative workshop artist Daniella Ruffino will demonstrate how to  transform waste products into a versatile, sculptural material. Daniella’s  re-use of waste products as the main ingredients for making her concrete is akin to an experimental practice called the closed loop material cycle (CLMC). Daniella will take participants through the process of making homemade concrete from scratch.

DANIELLA RUFFINO

Daniella’s work draws on the urban environment’s impact on the discarded, the broken, the noxious and the ornamental. Recently, Daniella has been exploring the material properties behind the veneer of the urban sprawl culminating in experiments creating homemade concrete out of waste products.
                    
Daniella lives and works in Narrm (Melbourne). Daniella studied Sculpture at the VCA and currently works as a community programs librarian. Daniella's focus is in developing programs and art works that nurture the articulation and communication of creative ideas, which contribute to action in environmental protection, sustainable futures and empower marginalised voices.
