- Creative Edinburgh Interview!
- Fiona Luing
I’m really excited to be back at the annual Fruitmarket Gallery DesignMarket on the 15th and 16th of June. The fair celebrates contemporary craft across fashion, homeware, print and illustration and consistently delivers a superb varied selection of exhibitors. The gallery will be partnering with Creative Edinburgh again this year to provide designer led events and workshops throughout the weekend.
I’ll be showing some brand new work, including my Fairtrade gold pieces and recycled silver unisex collection. Hope to see you there!
Coming up fast is the annual arts festival Art at Ancrum! I love a chance to spend some time back in the Borders and this event allows me a very good excuse to stay with my parents and catch up with lots of old pals. From the 5th to the 7th of May, the beautiful village of Ancrum will host over thirty artists and designers in twelve different venues.
I am using this year's event as a deadline to have made my first few pieces of jewellery from Fairtrade gold. I have purchased some stunning sapphires and spinel which are fully traceable to source, and these will be the focal points of the new designs. I'm really excited to show these new pieces for the first time!
An exciting addition to Coburg House is our beautiful new shop, open every weekend 11am-4pm. With regularly changing exhibitions and a dedicated retail space for products and artwork made in the Coburg studios, there's always something new to see!Continue reading
