Strands Studios: four friends
Strands Studios is a group of four Glasgow artist-pals : Douglas Thomson, Sue Gerber, Sheila Cameron and Jim Crockert.
We come from diverse art backgrounds, training in Glasgow School of Art, the Scottish College of Textiles in Galashiels and in innumerable workshops and classes for the sheer love of a challenge.
We’ve taught painting and digital photography, stitched into the night on hot sewing machines, made wrought iron, massive theatre backdrops, clay figures, collagraphs and children’s books.
We’ve sold other people’s artwork in our own shops, kept accounts for arts organizations, designed communal gardens, driven the odd tractor; lived, worked and exhibited in Europe.
Now we’re just going to enjoy working in the company of good friends.
