The 2018 Art of Craft Lectures provides lovers of fashion, art jewellery and those who see their bodies as a canvas for self-expression with an opportunity to explore the art jewellery scene in Canada today.
The second lecture, on May 7th, features the ever engaging Vancouver artist Bridget Catchpole. As a Vancouver based jewellery artist, Catchpole's work often conveys the dichotomies between worth and waste. Bridget upcycles non-recyclable and found plastics to use as a raw material in her one-of-a-kind pieces. Currently, her work looks at patterns of plastic waste and how it has become ubiquitous presence in the natural environment.
