Ishtar Parrish Wain

Community Artist

Ishtar is a Brighton-based 3D Design and Craft graduate. Having specialised in woodwork and with experience working with clay and metal, her practice is multi-disciplinary. Motivated by the belief that community and communication lie at the heart of revolution, Ishtar feels strongly about the importance of bringing people together through making.

Ishtar joined ONCA in spring 2022 as an apprentice through the UK Government’s Kickstart Scheme, and has stayed on to become a community artist running Community Afternoons and other parts of our creative programme. She is committed to continuing environmental, political and social conversations through community craft.
