Cycling up the Hill with my Dad.

Textiles by Clare Heminsley, Ceramics by David Heminsley.

Eleven years ago today saw the opening of the exhibition by Clare Heminsley and David Heminsley at St Andrews Museum.

This exhibition celebrated and made links between the careers of two successful Scottish based makers who also happened to be father and daughter.
While working in very different media they shared similar stimulation for their work. Teaching provided the opportunity for exchanges with other artists, and being commissioned to make something for a particular client provided discipline and focus.
For both of them, drawing has been key to their artistic development and planning their work. Sketchbooks and other materials in the show gave an insight into their creative processes.

The catalogue which accompanied the show is available to buy from the Fife Contemporary shop here.
