Member Profile : Margaret Burgess


Experienced Artist, teacher and project manager, Margaret Burgess focuses on giving the discarded value by recycling it into jewellery and sculptures. “My recent medium of choice is Marine Debris” I find using this helps to raise awareness of the plastic Pollution in our Oceans and the damage it is causing our marine life and sea birds.”

Participant’s in Rubbish or Resource Masterclass will use marine debris collected from the Great Barrier Reef to make either a pair of earrings or broach using techniques I have developed.
