One of the biggest influence on my work is that of pioneer photographer Anna Atkins who was the first woman photographer in 1840's using Cyanotype to record Seaweeds, I have taken her work a step further to Cyanotype seaweed onto fabric the to make it into a Lamp Shade. Sunday 27 September is World Cyanotype day so watch this space as we will all be celebrating Cyanotype and how much we love it !

For every £500 I sell I will buy £100 of another makers/artists work
Who else is taking part ?

I am posting images of these books as part of the #makersupportpledge as suggested by the Crafts Council from an idea from matthew burrows studio
This is where makers sell their work up to £200 (not including postage/shipping) and then every time they sell £500 of work they buy £100 of work from another maker
Contact me directly if you want to buy a book
In Matthew’s words “This creates a market where all can contribute whatever their level of success. This is a culture dependent on the honesty and generosity of our creative communities.” So, make a pledge and post your work with #makersupportpledge #artistsupportpledge

After running quite a few lamp shade workshops now I thought it would be good to see what participants have said so far !
'A really enjoyable workshop - almost two in one! Fascinating learning about the cyanograph printing process and then making up the lampshade. Thank you!'
'A lovely workshop, good for small groups/pairs. A really enjoyable process and Bridget is a really easy going tutor, making for a really relaxing day. The lamps turn out better than you think they will. Lovely lunch too.'
Next workshop with spaces Monday 16 March and Saturday 21 March still at £60 until April
