A craft fair calendar

I’ve been getting my craft fair calendar sorted for 2019 and will be a load of great events during the next few months.

I’m really excited about going to Piping Inverness, which is a new event for the city. This is the European Pipe Band Championships 2019 and will attract pipers from across the world, including Australia, Belgium and Denmark. You might have been to the championships in Forres over the past few year and will know how much of a spectacle this is. Inverness has taken over hosting and will hold the event at Bught Park until 2021.

I’ll also be joining Exclusively Highlands for a number of craft fairs, including Brodie Castle and Eden Court Theatre.

You can find all the dates on my Craft Fairs and Workshops page.

And there will be more dates added as I confirm other events, so keep checking the page for updates.

Until then, if you’re looking for a wee gift inspired by the Cairngorms, visit my shop to see the available range.

Mush! Mush!

The Aviemore Sled Dog Rally at Glenmore is always a fantastic spectacle – lots of excited dogs and hundreds of keen spectators along the Loch Morlich tracks.

This year, I’m going to be heading along to join the traders in the marquee – an early start to my year of craft fairs.

The event, organised by the Siberian Husky Club of Great Britain, has been running 1984 and now attracts more than 1,000 sled dogs and 250 mushers. This year it’s on Saturday January 26 and Sunday January 27.

I’m really looking forward to it. Huskies are such beautiful dogs.

Not sure if there’ll be snow yet but I’m looking out the thermals anyway!

Thanks to Steven Feasey for the husky photographs. You can find him on Facebook here.

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.
