Fenella is a skilled maker who you will all know from the spectacular Flow Pot acquired by Swindon Museum & Art Gallery in 2015.  She first discovered working with clay when taught to throw by a school teacher who took the class to see a Lucy Rie exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1981.  She says “aspects of my past career in mental health continue to influence my work with clay; the subconscious approach, a sense of rhythm, attention to detail and difference.  I don’t seek to put my experiences into the clay, but marvel at how they emerge.”

Limited number of seats available so book your tickets early.
