Matthew Harkness will be facilitating small group workshops in 3D printing with PLA waste and clay at Australian Design Centre to coincide with the exhibition Bioplastic Futures: 3D Printing and the Maker Movement.


During the workshops, participants will digitally create simple geometric shapes while reflecting on waste, plastics and bioplastics, 3D printing, and maker culture. The workshops will use TINKERCAD modelling software and are open to participants both with and without makerspace or 3D printer experience.


Matthew Harkness is an emerging designer, researcher, and academic from Calgary, Alberta, Canada currently completing a PhD at the University of New South Wales School of Art & Design.


Bioplastic Futures: 3D Printing and the Maker Movement exhibition is on at Australian Design Centre from 16 June – 2 July 2022.
