Take one dog add a waterfall then a beach, a picnic and the sun = a great afternoon out..
The Market Street Collective Shop opened in mid April – we sell the work of 30 local artists and crafts people, from ceramics to textiles and paintings to jewellery. Three of us run the shop, please take a look at our wares – if you see anything you like just email me and I can send you a link to the maker, they are a talented bunch….
You can find the shop on Market Street in Ullapool and the fabulous An Talla Solais gallery – right next to the Village Hall! So if you are in the NW Highlands you know where to come for quality fine arts and crafts.
Not a bad commute eh? Just one view on the road form Nedd to Ullapool…..
I’m sitting in ‘the soon to be open’ Market Street Collective Shop at An Talla Solais in Ullapool, it is cold and clear and the air smells of ozone. There is a fabulous print exhibition on in the main Gallery, and interesting folk coming in to look around.
Before the shop can open there are plinths to be moved, shelves to put up, doors to hang…. lighting, whitewashing, book keeping, form filling, advertising, emailing etc, etc – I’m looking forward to the fun bit – displaying & selling the fine arts and crafts from local makers once again. Watch this space for opening info and photos.
We’ve had the best of the weather again up here in the North West Highlands – with almost 4 weeks of sun, cold, bright, crisp days – frosty, clear nights punctured by shooting stars & fragranced by wood smoke.
Its been busy at Oystercatcher Cottage, friends have been visiting and new work has been made. We also entered work into the West Coast Open exhibition at An Talla Solais in Ullapool, we’ve supported ATS since it’s inception, it is a fantastic organisation, showcasing and supporting local artists. If you get the chance please go along, it’s a great gallery and a wonderful opportunity to see the work of artists/makers from across the Highlands. Check out – http://antallasolais.org.
