“Now I can reach far more people than I previously thought possible and hopefully that will translate into new markets for my sculpture"
Henrietta attended some of the Women and Broadband workshops organised by the Better Broadband for Oxfordshire programme. These were a series of workshops to enhance the digital skills of women in the county and ran between September 2015 - March 2016 and were funded by the Government Equalities Office.
Henrietta Bud is a sculptor who works from a studio in Oxfordshire. She uses a variety of materials and her pieces are unusual, sometimes quirky. The human figure is a recurring preoccupation and she is fascinated by how form can communicate on an emotional level.
Henrietta has a degree in History of Art from Cambridge University and trained in sculpture, painting and drawing in London and Brussels. She exhibits internationally and has work in public and private collections in the UK and in mainland Europe from Belgium to Greece.
Before attending the Women and Broadband workshops, Henrietta had a website and a presence on several artists’ sites but found it hard to keep them up to date. She says:
“I am so pleased that I was able to attend some of the WAB workshops. I was reluctant to experiment with social media beforehand but the workshops demystified the process. In doing so, they opened up a whole new world. The workshops were brilliant and I can’t thank the organisers enough. An additional benefit was the chance to meet some wonderful entrepreneurial women from Oxfordshire and to find that we had so many shared concerns.”
