Makers based in Inverness. I applied for mentorship from them having spent so long away from the goings on in the contemporary craft world, I really needed some help to be pointed in the right direction, and this is exactly what I got. Friendly help, support and advice from a number of experts who came and helped us with various issues we were experiencing at different times of the year.
This is the advert for our end of project exhibition now on at Inverness Museum and Art Gallery. Me, Lucy Dunnachie, Jane McLeod, Lucy Macdonald, Rebecca Brown and Rebecca Cotton all live in the far reaching corners of the Highlands and Islands. We all have the same concerns about isolation in terms of access to contemporary craft groups, support and inspiration from other workers. We have all found our way this year through different routes, getting together in Inverness, Edinburgh and Glasgow, and at the end 4 out of the 6 met with Emergents in London to visit London Design Week. It will be interesting to follow each other's progression in the next few years.
If you would like to come and join us on the 7th June at 1 15pm to 2 15pm in the Art Gallery to look at our work and have a chat, please do so it would be lovely to see you!
