Eleanor Glover

Eleanor’s early background in book design and wooden toymaking is reflected in her work which spans wooden sculpture, calligraphy and shadow theatre.

She taught as a senior lecturer in graphic design and textiles at degree level. She now works therapeutically with the arts in health and community environments.

She has exhibited her work widely in the UK and abroad.

Describe your approach to teaching
My approach is friendly and inclusive, sharing my own methods and experiments, demonstrating and showing examples but offering opportunities to ‘learn through doing’ as soon as possible.

What inspires your own work?
The unexpected and extraordinary in ordinary life, live theatre, dance, poetry and an eclectic mix of visual art from ancient times to the present.
