I make objects on commission (including repairing things) for exhibitions and private collections alongside my studio practice. I also loan my work for exhibitions. Please contact me to discuss commissions or loans, or Varuna at Ruup&Form gallery for sales.
I enjoy researching in archive/collections, visual and/or object based, library/text and digital based research, as well as formal/informal interviews. I collate this work visually, textually and through presentations, and by making artefacts.
Through my curatorial practice I group objects together to express or suggest particular narratives, complexities, ask questions and propose ideas around making. I use these opportunities to explore ideas such as zero waste exhibition making, experimental publication methods, and digital and physical interactions.
I write for academic and on-academic audiences. For examples see here. I also give talks about my work, online, pre-recorded and/or in person. Please email me for further information about commissioning writing, giving presentations or interviews.
I am currently offering online: consultancy on creative projects; one to one/group tutorials; group workshops/seminars; writing feedback
My expertise lies in repair, sustainability, craft concepts and ideas, textiles and other material practice. I also run workshops on unpicking and communicating practice, methodologies, writing, and embedding research into practice.
I have over 6 years experience as a MA tutor and as visiting lecturer on BA courses (including 3d Design, Craft, and Textiles), developing and unpicking studio practice and critical research papers/essays. I have designed and delivered modules, workshops and seminars.
