Bryony Anderson’s puppets and constructions for visual performance have toured nationally and internationally with many Australian circus, puppetry, performance and theatre companies, as well as appearing in museums, festivals and films. Solo exhibitions have ranged from interactive puppetry installations and handmade projection machinery to intricate illustration, all investigating the potential in salvaged materials. She has led over 100 workshops with groups from preschoolers to dementia patients, and mentored emerging makers from around Australia.
In 2011 she established One Off Makery and began working with locals to seed a creative industry of skilled artisans making high calibre work from frugal resources. From this Frugal Arts Inc and the Frugal Forest Project grew, drawing in scientists, artists, composers, educators and over 1200 participants to create an intricately detailed forest entirely from stuff that was headed to landfill. The Forest is now on tour and more participatory projects are in the pipeline.
