What to bring on the day
All materials are provided on the day. Wear something you’re happy to get a bit creatively messy in.
Design and create your own opera rose bouquet!
Be a floral artist for a day and craft and paint a mini opera rose bouquet to say thank you to someone special you love. You will learn how to transform everyday kitchen items such as egg cartons and cupcake wrappers into things of beauty. For the finale, we will have our very own rose petal ceremony photo booth where you will don some opera gloves, graciously take a bow and receive your bouquet with a round of applause from the audience. With hanky in hand, take over the mic and thank the special people in your life in an impromptu acceptance speech. Bravo, brava!
Sydney Opera House Presents
Meet the artist
Anney Bounpraseuth is an Australian-born artist of Laotian heritage who reinterprets matriarchal traditions through painting, textiles, and sculpture to assert self-determined identity.
Bounpraseuth describes her kitsch, vivid and intensely patterned aesthetic as Cabracadabra or ‘South East Asian mum-style’ in honour of her mother Chockeo who came from Laos to Australia as a refugee migrant, raising her family in Cabramatta, a suburb of South West Sydney. Bounpraseuth cites her mother's clashing wardrobe and interior decorating style with fake flowers, imitation antiques and mismatched textiles as her main artistic influence.
Bounpraseuth has been featured on ABC TV and iView, ABC Radio National, FBI Radio’s Canvas program and Frankie Magazine. In 2019, she was a finalist for the Hidden Rookwood Sculpture Exhibition and Prize. She has presented in various galleries across NSW with solo exhibitions at Fairfield City Museum and Art Gallery and Bankstown Arts Centre. In 2018, she curated the February ARTBAR at the Museum of Contemporary Art.
