Guest Speaker announced for Summer Arts Evening 2017

Posted: 9th June 2017

Every year Miss Eng, Head of Art, invites an inspirational guest speaker to attend the St Augustine’s Priory Summer Arts Evening and speak at the prize giving. This year, Miss Eng has asked Isatu Hyde, a functional ceramics potter, to discuss her career with our guests and girls. 

Isatu Hyde is a designer and craftswoman based in North West London. She currently runs a small pottery studio based above the Committee of Taste café in Gladstone Park. Work produced in her studio is made on the potter’s wheel and intended to be both cherished and used. Isatu completed a degree in Sustainable Product Design at Falmouth University, and then a 3 year traditional apprenticeship with Andrew Crouch at The Marches Pottery in Ludlow. Her work is a reflection of her broad inspirations taken from ceramic traditions and design history from around the globe, and of her dedication to craft practice, good design and hand skills. A selection of Isatu’s work will be available at the Summer Arts Evening on 28th June for purchase in the Rose Gardens.
