Vanda Campbell is an artist-maker and teacher, whose practice challenges the received view of found objects and materials. After completing her BA(Hons) in Fine Art, she graduated with an MA in Applied Arts achieving a distinction. Recent exhibitions include 10 Days at Winchester Cathedral (where her collaborative work, Laid To Rest, won the festival award); Draw The Line at The Surface Gallery, Nottingham; Connections: 2018 at Wells Malting Arts, Norfolk. Her work is also featured in Mary Schoeser’s book Textiles: The Art of Mankind (Thames and Hudson). Until last year, Vanda was a part-time lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire on the BA(Hons) Contemporary Design Crafts course, and alongside her art practice, now teaches extensively at her studio in Saffron Walden, Essex, as well as providing short courses and workshops for art societies and textile art groups nationwide.
