Bridget Harvey

making & curating, exploring process

Hackney, Greater London


repairing / mending, sculpture, contemporary jewellery


£80 — £1250


I craft tactile objects, inspired by narrative. As a maker, I use traditional and new techniques, reclaimed and found materials.  Investigating repair and reuse, time and play, I explore materials and joining methods. 

I undertake residencies, facilitate workshops, curate and write, and am finishing an AHRC PhD entitled RepairAbility: Repair-making as a material and social action.

I am Associate Lecturer on MA Designer Maker at Camberwell College of Arts.
