Nicola Henderson is a ceramic artist who first came to Project Ability through our residency programme last year. She is now one of our fantastic volunteers, and she works with different Aspire artists in the ceramic room.
‘I graduated from Newcastle College of Art in July 2013 with a FdA in Contemporary Ceramic Practice, I now continue to develop my own practice at Glasgow Ceramic Studios in Hanson street.
I started volunteering at Project Ability with the Aspire group in February this year (2014). I’m stationed in the ceramics room and make clay work available to those who wish to have a go. So far I’m pleased to say that there has been a few of those in the Aspire group who have joined me and we’ve had a lovely time making and chatting. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly and we’ve had a very productive few weeks! We are currently using red earthenware clay along with slips and underglazes for decoration. I’m thoroughly enjoying my time so far and looking forward to working with the group again in the next block of workshops’
Thank you Nicola!
