Elin Johnston - "Meet The Maker" Talk
Elin Johnston recently completed a 'Meet The Maker' talk with a group of sixth form students at Lagan College Belfast as part of her 'arts development and engagement' activities supported by Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council and Island Arts Centre.
At the screen and 'hands-on' event she presented several projects with a particular focus on her new work which uses acrylic, metals, and optical fibres, and combines digital processes with traditional technique.
Emma Niblock, Head of Art & Design, Lagan College said......
"Elin presented her beautifully created and finished sculptural body pieces at Lagan College. Her presentation and personal accounts of the creative process were inspiring and very motivational in showing the young people that a creative path is not always defined by one discipline but instead can be diverse and exciting. Thank you Elin for taking time to share in your creative adventures and observations".
Elin says...... "As an Artist/Maker/Jeweller, sharing my work and practice is always a pleasure and I do hope that all will have found it of interest, insight, and value".
She would welcome any enquiries from other parties interested in hosting a similar event, and can be contacted via email at - firstname.lastname@example.org
