Wonks are cuddly sculptures made from found and reused materials. Wonks are playfully dedicated to a squasher wonkier world, full of wellness. They are made without a plan, not worrying about straight lines or edges, and instead concerned with bringing joy. A call to stop denying pleasure for the sake of perfection, each Wonk is unique.
Wonks were born at Open School East, and exhibited at the Beaney House of Art and Knowledge, House of Annetta, Burgh House and The Lab E20.
