Bridget Harvey

interdisciplinary maker

Hackney, Greater London


repairing, conceptual craft, processes of making


£80 — £1250


I investigate process and materials through making.

I make artefacts and curatorial works which re-story the familiar, reconstruct the forgotten, exploring makerly ways of doing.

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

My AHRC PhD is titled Repair-Making: Craft, Activism, Narrative

I tutor on MA Designer Maker, Camberwell College of Arts, and am Maker in Residence at V&A until July 2019
