Venue B Open Studios

stone wall and house

It has been a whirlwind of a year with lots of workshops and fairs but we are now at the pinnacle of the Lanark Artist’s calendar with Biggar Little Festival Open Studios.  This is the 2nd year I have opened my home studio and this year I have Karen Kelly Rag Rugs showing with me too.

With 2 other Lanark Artists showing at Venue C in Waterloo Road, Lanark, we are well placed to receive lots of visitors and it would be brilliant to welcome you.  There will be lots of art work on show and to purchase.  You will also be able to see where the artists work and how they do what they do.  We will also be serving refreshments.

GIVEAWAY – As a special thank you for visiting both venues B & C in Lanark we are holding a free prize draw so you can have a chance to win a collection of bespoke goodies from the artists taking part.   Don’t forget to fill in a ticket and hand it in at the other venue.

Biggar Embroiderer’s Guild at New Lanark

Biggar Embroiderer's Guild at New Lanark

There is still time to go and see the amazing work of Biggar Embroiderer’s Guild who are celebrating their 40th Birthday this month. I am a relatively new member of the Guild but I’m delighted to have 2 pictures (Pink sky and Telephone Box) featured in the exhibition. There are many different types of embroidery on display as well as bead work and jewellery.

Scottish Diaspora Tapestry Advert

The Exhibition at UNESCO World Heritage Site New Lanark is a real privilege and we celebrated with a presentation to founding members and also an afternoon tea. Where ever I go in the stitching world there is always an abundance of cake.

Scottish Diaspora Tapestry

The Guild’s exhibition sits within the large display space in a former mill at New Lanark and is alongside the Scottish Diaspora Tapestry which charts the success of Scots who moved abroad, sharing their skills in their new homelands.

New Lanark is a great day out for the whole family and the setting in the Falls of Clyde Nature Reserve is breathtaking. I hope you can make it along and remember access the Biggar Embroiderer’s Guild Exhibition is FREE.

New Look Website

A Puffin's Best Side

I am delighted with the new style of my website. I hope you’ll agree it has been worth the wait. I’ve still to add a Home page which will happen very soon but it’s great to have such a good looking and easy to use way to display my pictures and share all the events, exhibition and workshops I am involved in .

A big thanks to Janet of First Effect who has provided me with lots of advice, information and actually sprinkled a hefty dose of web magic all over my site to make it work and look fantastic.

Keep checking in for the latest news, events and workshop information or sign up for the newsletter. I’m really looking forward to meeting some of you at my workshops , Artist in Action Days and Open Studios in 2019.
