ABOUT Anna TRIGG

Anna Trigg grew up on an isolated farm in North West NSW and on the road to her current occupation she also worked in ceramics, marketing, tour managing and teaching. Her journey of self-taught lighting craft began ten years ago when she couldn’t find anyone who stocked the lamps she was looking for. In 2009, she launched 3Chooks Lampshades, offering lampshade making supplies, workshops and expert advice. In the last six years, her workshops have delighted and inspired across NSW and Victoria, with many of her students establishing their own custom lamp businesses.
