Sophie Alda an artist, designer, maker and facilitator working with:
-The production and development of objects exploring the relationship between the functional, the sculptural and the narratively suggestive, approaching materiality and tactility in a playful way, rejecting the hierarchy of the practically useful/ art object within craft or otherwise.
-Co-operation - creating the space and structure to facilitate production and community, skill sharing, interdisciplinary collaboration and independence in a precarious environment.
She is a founding member of workshop co-operative Clay Collective based in Hackney, London. Our aims in forming the organisation and space were to provide a democratic and supportive space and community in which practitioners could work and collaborate, sharing skills, space, ideas and resources.
