I’ve spent the last few weeks doing all the preparation work for my new project with my friend and fellow artist Aileen Grant. We set up Lochcarron Arts as a very informal partnership so that we could work together to hold some exhibitions and maybe run some workshops together. We spent some time over the past couple of months planning and meeting up with some lovely people to organise some exhibitions and some workshops.
Both Aileen and I sketch and paint outside a lot so we thought it would great to be able to share our experience of working en plein air, so we’ve arranged to run four workshops at the absolutely stunning Attadale Gardens and two workshops at the gorgeous Loch Torridon, based at the Loch Torridon Centre, there are three stunning mountains dominating the landscape: Beinn Alligin, Liathach and Beinn Eighe. For more information about this project or to book a place click here: Workshops
We also have several exhibitions planned too at Attadale, in the gorgeous wee gatehouse
Aileen and I have also planned to hold a series of Open Studios throughout the year, on the first Friday of every month. I’ll be posting more information about them via my social media pages (links below).
Planning and designing our workshops has been a lot of work and quite lot of fun too but working on the website was a whole other thing entirely. I have learned so much, but I think I was dreaming about links and blogs and uploading photos and info in the end. Fingers crossed though, everything seems to be working okay and you can find out more via the Lochcarron Arts page or even book a place on one of our workshops. So I’m now available to design websites *(I’m totally NOT available to design websites, though I have a lot of admiration for those who do!)
If you want to know more about the Lochcarron Arts projects or more about our open studios please do contact me to say hello.
