Nith Landscape Workshops with Ed and Fiona

The Nith Landscapes exhibition is entering its final full week. And we've got a couple of special events tied in with it.

This coming Saturday (6th June), Ed Slater will be revealing his trade secrets by showing customers how he creates his pictures. Ed's bringing in canvases that he is currently working on to reveal the different stages in the creation of his amazing pieces.

Ed's pieces are multilayered, using acrylics, glass paint and found objects. They've raised a lot of interest at the Nith Landscapes exhibition. So his talk should be fascinating insight his work.

Ed will be at Tosh from 3pm on Saturday and entry is free.

And fellow exhibitor Fiona Allardyce-Lewis will be running our first paid entry workshop next Thursday (11th June).

Fiona has been inspired by the arts and crafts legend William Morris for this workshop. And particularly his vision encapsulated in his famous quote: "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."

Fiona's keepsake boxes and mirrors have lots of buyers. She manages to combine technical skill, mastery of perspective and humour to create distinctive pieces of art.

In the workshop, Fiona will be helping customers create painted placemats or coasters that will be theirs to keep. The workshop runs from 10am to 5pm and it costs £35. That includes all materials, lunch and morning and afternoon tea/coffee and cakes.

Fiona says: "I've run workshops for young people before, but this is my first workshop for adults, and I'm really looking forward to it."
