It hasn't been feeling particularly summery up here on the Isle of Skye however having a few days off last week enabled me to rediscover the island and all the hidden gems! This is from Coral Beach in the north of the Island.
back to work...
There are a lot of exciting events coming up over the next few months and some I have been keeping quiet...until now!
XpoNorth Crafts, Fashion and Textiles will be showcasing the work of 11 Highlands and Islands designer makers (including myself) at XpoNorth in Inverness on the 10th & 11th June.
The XpoNorth Cr&FT platform will be both a showcase and a celebration of the most talented designers & makers in craft, fashion & textiles who are currently developing successful businesses in the Highlands & Islands region. The focus of the showcase will be to promote the quality and creativity of the businesses involved and the international geographical reach of their products from their base in the area.
The other makers I will be exhibiting alongside are:
- Eileen Gatt
- Gavin Robertson
- Gilly Langton
- Helen Lockhart
- Hilary Grant
- Julia Smith
- Kirsteen Stewart
- Melanie Muir
- Paulette Brough
If you are in Inverness over the 2 days it is well worth seeing what is on as there is a jam packed programme. The full programme for XpoNorth is now online at: http://xponorth.co.uk/festival-programme
