One Off Makery designs and creates high calibre work from frugal resources for performance, exhibition and participation. We are located in the Pappinbarra Valley, on the Mid North Coast of NSW.
Since 1997 Bryony Anderson’s puppets and constructions for visual performance have toured nationally and internationally with many Australian performance, puppetry, circus 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 in urban, rural, and desert communities, devised large scale participatory projects and mentored emerging makers from around Australia.
After setting up a workshop in a solar-powered shed in the bush, One Off Makery was established in 2011 and began working with community to create high calibre, locally relevant work from frugal resources. A residency program begun in 2018 invites artists and scientists to share this wonderful place.
From July 2019 – July 2020 Bryony is the Associate Artist at Terrapin Theatre Company in Hobart, Tasmania, designing and constructing puppets and performance objects and mentoring local makers.
