Clay Lives - An Illustrated Talk

Speaker: Elaine Henderson
https//:elainehendersonatscapastudios.com
Members: free | Guests: £5.00.

Elaine Henderson is a new member who has joined recently after moving to the Borders from

Orkney. After retiring from a professional career in music teaching, she re-trained in ceramics and

with an Honours degree from Glasgow School of Art set up her own studio and gallery. She has

since published a book on her work, Singing Stones, held annual exhibitions, instigated and

directed the Orkney Craft Festival, won a commission to design the New Music Scotland Awards,

been mentioned in the Scottish Parliament in connection with teaching and autism, and taught

aboard a world cruise ship. She is now in the process of establishing a practice in her new home

and is keen to share her enthusiasm for the subject. She therefore invites you to an illustrated talk

which covers a broad history of ceramics including contemporary practice and her own work.

Interested members may like to have a look at her website which has examples of her work and

that of past pupils. Elaine also suggests that members bring along a favourite ceramic object which

could be discussed within the group.

Members expressing an interest in a practical demonstration and workshop will be able to take away information sheets concerning the details of a new course to take place in late October which Elaine is designing specifically for the Scottish Arts Club.
