Craft fairs for 2018 (part 1)

This year is set to be another busy one, though my events will be a bit closer to home than last year.

I’m still in the process of confirming other events, but so far I can reveal I’ll be joining Exclusively Highlands again for a series of craft fairs:

  • July 14 & 15 – Eden Court Theatre, Inverness
  • July 21 – Inverness Highland Games
  • August 3 & 4 – Moy Games Fair
  • November 16-18 – Eden Court Theatre, Inverness
  • December 7-9 – Eden Court Theatre, Inverness

There’ll also be a summer exhibition at Logie Steading, near Forres. More information about that in the next few months.

 

 

Castle Fraser craft fair

Castle Fraser. Five floors of crafty goodness.

Just set up for the first time at Castle Fraser. Open 24 and 25 November from 10am-4pm. It is a wonderful fair in a stunning venue, with such a lot of good stuff for sale.

If you’re through this way it’s well worth a visit.

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!

Keep up with Angus Grant Art in 2017

This year is going to be a busy one for Angus Grant Art. I’ve recently had confirmation of a host of dates for craft fairs and a couple of exhibitions.

I’ll be travelling the north with Exclusively Highlands and also heading into new regions to exhibit my paintings with Art Aboyne. And I’m back at The Iona Gallery in Kingussie in the summer, for a joint exhibition with well-known painter, and my former art teacher, Campbell Bryson.

Find the dates on the Exhibitions page, and craft fairs on the Events and Workshops page.

But stay posted for more events and shows – I’ve got more plans to fill up the year!

At Eden Court today!

Just about ready to go at Eden Court Theatre… the mugs are out and the sun is shining on the Exclusively Highlands Craft Fair. 

Angus Grant Art can be found in the Bishop’s Palace: you might see us through the window as you go in the main door.

Go right as you enter the lobby and keep going up the slope and then through the doors on right beside the fudge stall and right again into our cosy room of craft.

Doors open today from 12pm to 8pm… A chance for late night shopping? 

We’re also here Saturday and Sunday. 

Hope to see you soon!

Coo Cathedral

I’m off on my travels later this week – back on the craft fair circuit.

Angus Grant Art will be at Coo Cathedral near Aboyne on Saturday and Sunday for Exclusively Highlands event. I’ve never been there before so I’m really looking forward to it. The venue looks fantastic and I reckon there will be a brilliant atosphere.

It’s a great chance to go further afield with my work and meet new people.

Coo Cathedral is also the first in a series of events for me in the run-up to Christmas. This is the list so far.

Sept 10-11 – Exclusively Highlands, Coo Cathedral, Aboyne
Nov 18-20 – Exclusively Highlands, Eden Court Theatre, Inverness
Dec 9-11 – Exclusively Highlands, Eden Court Theatre, Inverness

You can also find the list on my Events page – hope to see at one of these soon!
