New Book on the History of New Craftsman

We are proud to announce that this autumn Professor Simon Olding, Director of the Crafts Study Centre, Farnham, is to publish a new book on the history of the New Craftsman Gallery St Ives.

Simon has spent his career researching modern and contemporary craft practice, with a special interest in 20th century and contemporary studio ceramics, and the history of craft organisations in southwest England. He has previously made special studies of the etchings of Bernard Leach and of Leach’s personal collection of studio ceramics.

On 22nd September Professor Olding will give a talk on his book at St Ives Art Club as part of the 2022 St Ives September Festival. Tickets will be available later in the year.
