Back in early August I travelled up to North West Scotland for a week’s course at Bridge House Art. The course was called Alchemy, and focused on mark making and altering surfaces. Taking inspiration from the dramatic (and sometimes stormy) surroundings, we delighted in a whole week’s experimentation using light and heavy materials.
We also incorporated found objects foraged from the shore into our experiments….
A larger piece was created, but the week for me was about experimenting and new techniques…only time will tell how they will filter through into things and words made closer to home. Saying a fond farewell to Ullapool, I returned to my nest with fresh memories of the mountains and inspiration from the sea.
