Camden graduated from Southampton Institute of Higher Education in 1985, and completed at BA (Hons) in Glass with Ceramics at Sunderland Polytechnic in 1990. She moved to Auckland, New Zealand in 1991. A master class on the lost-wax method of casting with David Reekie introduced Camden to this method, which became the focus of her work.
