About this project

A solo exhibition at ‘Inspired by…gallery’  in The North York Moors National Park. 2017.

Bridget grew up in Yorkshire and spent time on the moors looking for Northern Eggar caterpillars and Emperor moths. This exhibition combined her insect obsession from childhood with all the making skills and materials of a career in textiles and millinery.

So small, so diverse, insects can still feel undiscovered, offering the chance of an investigative making challenge.
