Hayley began her career as a Photographer, with a particular passion for hand-manipulating archival prints. Following a successful collaboration with The John Kobal Collection in 2012, she discovered a natural aptitude and passion for book and box-making. Following the Bauhaus idea that, 'form follows function', her bindings use age-old, traditional skills with contemporary techniques - merging the highest standards with true practicality. Alongside her fellow bookbinding team at Barnard and Westwood, Hayley aims to continue to push bookbinding forward to meet the needs and expectations of the new craft consumer. She has recently completed an Advanced Fine Binding course to further develop her skills and continues to train the new generation of bookbinding apprentices at the Barnard and Westwood workshop.
