Strathpeffer and beyond!

It’s always a pleasure to get the chance to exhibit paintings further afield so I’m delighted that some of my fishy paintings will be at the annual Strathpeffer Art Fair.

The show started today (Thursday November 23) and runs until Sunday. This is a huge exhibition and sale taking place at the village’s lovely Victorian pavilion. It’s my second year taking part alongside scores of Highland artists and I can thoroughly recommend it for a visit.

Opening hours are:
Friday 24th Nov – 10am-8pm
Saturday 25th Nov – 10am-6pm
Sunday 26th Nov – 10am-2pm

 

And because your Christmas shopping missions continue for a few more weeks, I’ll be at Castle Fraser, Inverurie, on Saturday and Sunday with the Exclusively Highlands event. More information here.

And for good measure, I’ll also be represented at a wee fair closer to home, at The Pagoda in Grantown. This event runs on Sunday only, 10am-2pm. Got a wee helper going along!

A crafty countdown to Christmas

Summer’s definitely over – there’s a chill in the air again. But with Christmas round the corner (how did that happen?), I’m heading to more Exclusively Highlands craft fairs in the next couple of months.

First up, this weekend I’m off to Drum Castle, near Banchory. Never been here before but it looks like a fantastic setting in the middle of Aberdeenshire. The craft fair is on October 7 and 8.

Then, in a few weeks time, it’s Eden Court Theatre in Inverness for the first of two pre-Christmas events (Nov 17-19) and then back east, this time to Castle Fraser, near Inverurie, on Nov 25-26.

And to round off 2017, I’ll be at Eden Court for the final EH craft fair before Christmas on December 8-10.

Looking forward to seeing some of you there!

Carving and chrome

There’s a busy weekend coming up in Strathspey – lots of brilliant events for residents and visitors. I’m getting ready to run stalls with my mugs and pine prints at both. It’s great to be at local events – meeting old friends and new.

Saturday sees Carve Carrbridge, the popular chainsaw carving competition. It’s fascinating to watch the competitors create artworks out of massive pieces of wood. And Carrbridge is such a vibrant community – everyone turns out to support the event.

On Sunday I’ll be much closer to home at Motormania at Grantown. There’ll be scores of shiny vintage vehicles on display in the High Street, along with stalls and activities for all the family. I’m there with the Cairngorms Farmers Market, so there’ll be lots of food and craft to tempt you. Looking forward to a great weekend!

A bumper summer

From exhibitions to craft fairs with a few workshops thrown in for good measure: it’s going to be a busy few months for Angus Grant Art.

I’ve got a packed schedule from July 1, when I’ll be at the Exclusively Highlands‘ craft fair at Eden Court Theatre.

After that I’ll be out and about with events in Carrbridge, Glenmore and Kingussie, as well as heading further afield to Aboyne.

Then as the summer holidays come to a close, I’m teaching another round of weekly silversmithing and pottery classes. The latter is already full up but you can still sign up for silversmithing.

Look out for upcoming posts with more details in the next few weeks. But you can also keep up with my travels by checking my Exhibitions page and the Events and Workshops page.

Craft in Carrbridge

Getting ready for the first craft fair of 2017 and it’s pretty close to home.

I’ll be at Bridge 300 in Carrbridge on Saturday May 20. It’s a big weekend of community events to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the village’s iconic Packhorse Bridge.

I live in Carrbridge a few years ago and it’s got a great community spirit so I’m really looking forward to this.

The craft fair is in the Village Hall on Saturday, 11am-2pm. I’ll have my wildlife mugs and the pine prints on sale.

There’s also a heap of other events going on from Friday to Sunday, including historical exhibitions and live music and dancing. Find out more on the Carrbridge website.

Hope to see you there!
