Claudia’s practice employs her photographic experience and explores the environment, collective making and public spaces as part of her practice.
She uses her knowledge of a variety of skills and combines them with her interest in useful art to create works on a diversity of materials and shapes.

TSAP @ Platt Hall 2020: The Hall Of Curiosities
“ The Hall of Curiosities” comprises curated items from Platt Hall Gallery, including Mary Greg’s particular acquisition of handmade objects, and her interest for artisan skills and the domestic. It highlights objects on various themes including games, music, tools, and nature, as well as a diverse selection of textile techniques and materials from different regions around the world, symbolising the rich influence of other nations on British history, industry and trade.
This immense diversity of objects, subjects, materials and techniques is reflected in the variety of people(s) and cultures living in the neighbourhood around the gallery. On the eye view window of the museum, more information about each object will be provided and some question/task/fact will be linked to each object to create a more engaging and interactive artwork.
