Christmas at Glenmore

As one craft fair comes to an end, so I have to give you a heads up on the last event in my Christmas calendar.

The Glenmore Visitor Centre is hosting a special festive fair with loads of family friendly activities on offer.

It takes place next weekend, Saturday December 15 and Sunday December 16, open 10am-4pm.

As well as a special menu at Cobbs Cafe, you can pick up a Christmas tree and do your gift shopping with me and a host of other local craftspeople.

And of course there’ll be reindeer…

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Grantown East

Delighted to be at Grantown East Highland Heritage and Cultural Centre yesterday for its grand opening.

This has been a major project for Karen Blessington and Dave Garman and it was great to see so many people turn out to see the fantastic results. Everyone loved the miniature railway – I did too.

I’m also pleased to have my products in the shop. They include some specially designed mugs featuring Highland Games athletes. You might also get the chance to sip some delicious coffee from them in the cafe, which is in two converted carriages. Everything looks brilliant and I wish them the best of luck with the venture.

Tea anyone?

I’m delighted to share these new tea sets. Just got them out of the kiln this evening in time for Jane to take along to the stall at the Eastgate Centre, Inverness, tomorrow. If you get a chance pop in and see her. They are stylish porcelain cups and saucers with a nice rustic finish and the capacity to hold a “good cuppa”.

Robins return

Summer is gone – it’s pretty dreich outside the studio. And I know it’s too early to say it, but my thoughts are turning to Christmas.

This year, I’ve got a special festive product. If you have been following my work for the past few years, you’ll remember my wee robin mugs. Well, they’re back!

Look out for this one at my craft fairs over the next few months. But they’re making a flying visit to the Highland Wildlife Park!

Craft fairs and painting demos

My summer of craft fairs starts this weekend at Eden Court Theatre, Inverness, with Exclusively Highlands. It’s always a busy one in the Highland capital and this time I will among a range of businesses demonstrating their craft.

I’ll be doing a spot of painting so the easel will be up and I’ll be chipping away at some new works. I’m looking forward to fielding your questions about how to paint a Highland landscape.

The craft fair is on Saturday and Sunday, from 10am-5pm both days. Free entry!

The best way to see Angus Grant paintings?

Thanks to everyone who has come to the Superfly at Logie Steading so far – particularly since there’s been so many things competing for your attention, not least the sunshine! I really appreciate your visit.

I’m delighted with how the show looks and what’s been extra special is having my wee boy there too. This time last year, during my show in Kingussie, we were waiting for him to arrive. It’s lovely to be able to show him the paintings and watch him crawl around and pull himself up on chairs. He got one of the best views of the work as you can tell from the above photo.

I’m here all week, so there’s plenty of time to make it along. You can find The Long Room easily from the car park at Logie. It’s beside the Garden Shop. See you soon.

Superfly is open!

The paintings are up, the sun is out and I’ve got ice lollies in the freezer for a lucky few visitors. Superfly is now open at Logie Steading.

I’m in the Long Room, which is beside the Farm and Garden Shop. It’s a great space to show paintings and I’m really excited to be here.

Highland Wildlife Art

I’m really excited that my ranges of mugs, pine prints and cards are now on sale at the Highland Wildlife Park. I am lucky to be one of a number of local artists with work in the gift shop.

The display was set up at the weekend and is looking great.

Angus Grant Art at the Highland Wildlife ParkI also got the chance to have a wander around the park as well. I saw the polar bears – including the newest arrival playing around – the snow monkeys and wildcats kittens. And for the first time when I’ve visited, the elusive wolverine was out and about. The fantastic weather just capped the day.

I’m looking forward to working with the park: it’s a brilliant visitor attraction.

And look out for my new polar bear mug – it’s coming soon!

Keep on trucking

My craft fair season starts next month with Truck In2 Grantown.

There’s going to be more than a hundred lorries taking part in this charity event, which is taking place for the first time on Saturday May 12. The day kicks off with a massive convoy down the High Street, followed by a big display at the showfield. There will be trade stalls and entertainment, including an aftershow dance.

The whole thing is to support Friends of the Neuro Ward at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

As well as this, I’ve been adding more events to the summer schedule: you can see the full calendar on my Events page.
