Although I have yet to pack my bags for the states, I am needing to tie up some plans for when I return to Edinburgh. This will be a ‘hit the ground’ running scenario that I need to prepare for.
Part of the artwork will be displayed at Craft House Concept, Minto Street, Edinburgh from the 4th of August to the 4th of September. There will be a preview show on the 4th of August, 5pm – 9pm. At around 6:30 I will give a quick little talk about the project, the work and the travels so far. Don’t worry, the talk with be short and hopefully pain-free for us all. What you can expect is my face turning a shocking shade of red the minute I open my mouth (this has plagued me since I was wee) as well as wine, wine and wine. I know there are lots of things to see and do during the festival. Why not start your evening with a brisk walk down the road to Craft House Concept, take in some wine, gossip and art ogling, then leisurely stagger back into town just in time for the first comedy event of the evening, whatever that may be.
There will also be Edinburgh Skyline artworks on sale at CHC as well as Hannah Zakari. I’ve created a new linear skyline print and have been pleased with the results.
Workshop: Sunday, 14th of Aug, 3 – 5pm. Ever wanted to try your hand at the thrilling experience that is Gocco printing? Well, here’s your chance. We will be making Gocco prints based on the themes of Edinburgh architecture. You will get a chance to create your own screen (don’t worry, images will already be sourced) and you will also take part in creating a collaborative artwork to be won by one lucky person in the group. And what’s more, you will leave the workshop with a framed artwork of your very own creation. All of that fun and an artwork to keep for just £18. There are only 8 spaces available and pre-booking is a MUST. To book yourself a space, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
