Bridget Harvey uses making to ask critical questions, generating new understanding and adding meaning through craft. She uses found objects and materials like fired ceramics, wood, and textiles, and since 2013 has focused on repair.

As Victoria and Albert Museum Artist in Residence, she examined the relationship of repair to conservation and her practice-based PhD is titled Repair-Making: Craft, Narratives, Activism. Her work has been commissioned and exhibited widely, acquired by the V&A and Camberwell ILEA Collection, and she has written pieces for exhibition catalogues and other publications.
