Clachan Yell Were Fantastic

The weather surprised us when we pitched up at the Grampian Transport Museum in Alford - it was a beautiful day, although horrendous wind at times. Huge gusts came along and nearly took the gazebos with it! Some of our stands:

It was an interesting day, not too many folk looking around the craft stalls, but the music was great. I thoroughly enjoyed Clachan Yell - traditional Scottish fiddle music. All the youngsters loved it too as they were all dancing. The fiddle players were brilliant musicians.

It was the first event of it's kind at the museum, and they have to improve on some aspects of it, but the Speyside Artisans would be more than happy to go back next year.

I hung around for a little while listening to the music, but left before Sandi Thom made an appearance. It was a long day, and was quite tired so happy to leave and head off home.

Belladrum - Tartan Heart Festival

Last weekend we were at the Tartan Heart Festival in Belladrum and it was great. We were camping in the traders park, but unfortunately this was right next door to the revellers, which is fine if you don't have to work, but as I was working, lack of sleep was a bit of a problem.

This is my stand at the festival:
The Standing Stones are a new product of mine (in the centre of the table) - they are vibrant and bright and it was these that drew people in to my stand.
I shut up shop early enough in the evenings to enjoy the music. This is The Wailers (as in Bob Marley) and we also saw K T Tungstall, Vatersay Boys, Feeder, Candi Staton, Amy MacDonald. The music was great and such a wonderful atmosphere.
This festival is such a family friendly place, I was very surprised at the amount of activities for kids. Sales were great too and I met some lovely traders and visitors. All in all we had a fab time.
Roll on the next Belladrum, Kathryn, Lazy Daisy Glass

Busy Few Weeks

It has been a busy few weeks lately - with lots of events. The Speyside Artisans will be at the Scout Hall in Aberlour this weekend from Thursday 5th - Saturday 7th - it will be your last chance to see them in Aberlour, so pop along to view all the wonderful things going on. Lesley has been demonstrating silk painting and it is absolutely fascinating watching it at work and what shapes will be created for the salt.

Another new piece I have created lately - Standing Stone. A bright and vibrant standing piece set in a mahogany base. They are so colourful when put in the window:

I will be at Belladrum Festival this weekend - if you are going, please pop along and say hi.
