Bridget Harvey

interdisciplinary maker

Hackney, Greater London


repairing, conceptual craft, processes of making


£80 — £1250


I investigate process and materials through making.

When exploring ways of working, acting and thinking, I make artefacts and curatorial works which re-story the familiar, reconstruct the forgotten.

Openly engaging with materials, tools and community, I take a multidisciplinary approach, communicated through objects and texts.

My AHRC PhD is titled Repair-Making: Crafts, Politic, Community.

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