maker investigating processes & concepts

Hackney, Greater London


process, concepts, making


£80 — £1250


I investigate craft processes & concepts through making practice.

By making and curating artefacts I re-story the familiar, reconstruct the forgotten, exploring makerly ways of doing. I engage with materials, tools and community, taking a multidisciplinary approach. I explore ideas such as playfulness, time, and repair.

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

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