Film Starlet from the 1920's

Sky Arts portrait Festival

Sky Arts are holding a portrait festival in conjunction with the Scottish heats of the ‘Sky Arts Portrait of the Year Award 2013′ This will be held at Kelvingrove Art Galleries Glasgow from 11am til 5pm.

21 artists paint 3 famous sitters for an exciting new TV series presented by Frank Skinner and Joan Bakewell. The Sitters are Actor John Hannah, Wheelchair Rugby Paralympian Michael Kerr and Sophie Turner from Game of Thrones.

As part of the portrait festival I will be weaving this portrait of the late great Billie Dove – famous 1920′s film actress – please do come along and watch!

Weaving Classes

The next class I run…

I often run classes from my studio in Dennistoun – Please watch this space to find out future dates – thank you.

My classes that I run are very small only 3 people maximum per class – so you do almost get one to one tutoring! This does also mean that they can fill up very quickly indeed.

I also occasionally run a wee ‘weavers knot’ – where weavers can bring along the project they are weaving on and weave! I often do them when I’m weaving a project or commission – so I’m weaving too! Great fun and lots of textile chat goes on! A small fee is asked for to cover teas and coffees. If you think you might be interested in taking part in a ‘weavers knot’ please do contact me!

I am also willing to do one to one tutorials and I am fairly flexible with dates and will add extra dates if people wish. My classes are small as I hold them in my studio which is where I keep a large stock of yarn, I also think that if the classes are small they are more personable to each students needs.
