Roy Ridsdale



Roy Ridsdale studied Silversmithing at Sheffield School of Art then at the Royal College of Art,

He has has had a long standing interest in the craft tradition of making objects and this is evident in the way he constructs his drawings.

Since retiring from a career as an academic in Art and Design education Roy has returned to what he considers the universally fundamental skills of drawing and painting.

More of these objects can be found in the Hawley Collection and the Kelham Island Museum where they share the same industrial buildings.

The solo exhibition of his work at The Millennium Gallery Sheffield sold out  in September 2017
