Since discovering my design was selected for the hoarding covering Anthropologie‘s new Edinburgh George Street store, I’ve been making sure my original 40 centimetre long artwork can be translated on to the giant 10 meter long space!
I’ve been very busy preparing huge stencils; choosing new delicious especially mixed colours; and laying out the design along my studio corridor to check the scale and visualise the surface I will be decorating. I love seeing my work in different contexts!
I’m very excited about creating the artwork and a wee bit nervous as Scottish film maker David Council is going to be documenting me through the process.
Fingers crossed for sunny weather in Edinburgh from this Thursday onwards!
I’m very excited to reveal that I’ll be covering Anthropologie‘s brand new Edinburgh store on George Street with my colourful marks! Anthropolgie are an incredible brand with a fantastic mix of women’s fashion, accessories and homeware – the Edinburgh store will be the first in Scotland!
I saw this great opportunity through incredible creative networkers – Central Station, so big thanks to them… It will be amazing to see my work on such a large scale – I can’t wait and am totally up for the challenge.
I don’t want to reveal the final 10m wide design just yet but you can see me live in action at the big blank space, near Lakeland from Thurs 19th May – so please pop past and say hello!
My work will be on show until the official store opening on 15th June, when it will be turned into take-away art for guests at the opening!
1st August to 9th of August is a fantastic Arts Festival in Pittenweem, it’s so picturesque and it amazing lots of the houses, churches, halls are used as exhibition spaces. My scarves are going to be in The Coach House Gallery – venue 19. I hope you can go along, it’s a great day out.
The deadline for ‘The C Word’ campaign is 29th May, coming up soon. It’s a campaign that will premier craft and change perceptions. If you are a contemporary craft maker check it out on the craftscotland website.
If you’re in Dundee the degree show is not to be missed, it’s on from the Saturday 23rd May till Saturday 6th June. It’s on at the Vision building at Seabraes this year!
I love this bag I got as a present from a friend who knows me well! I love tunnocks teacakes! I love the stripey wrapper – it’s a design classic! The designer/maker of the bag is a girl called Gillian Kyle based in Glasgow, she screen printed bags and aprons. The one I got is foil printed. Other in the range include other nostalgic scottish things – spam, scottish plain bread, scottie dogs and highland coos, sporrans . Did you know tunnocks have a I dark chocolate version of the teacake, with a navy blue and gold wrapper. My one was bought in the DCA shop in Dundee. Check out her website www.gilliankyle.com
