WJ Henderson started work as an apprentice draughtsman/engineer, age 14 in 1935, at Hall Russell Ship Building Yard Aberdeen and worked there in pivotal roles till he retired at 65.  He and his wife, Anne, devoted their lives to raising and supporting their four children, Brian, Anne, Gail and David and their subsequent families.
One of the special threads running strongly through the family, is an innate creativity that has manifested itself in their choice of studies, careers and personal pursuits in the visual arts.
This creative legacy is by no means unique to the Hendersons, but it has acted as a catalyst to hosting an exhibition which celebrates the result.

This opportunity serves to pull together a visual record of pieces created by our family, for some personal reasons, but mainly as a social insight into what links any family together through the generations.
