Lost in Summer

It may officially be Autumn, but that doesn’t stop us holding our Developing A Studio Practice Summer School with Fraser Taylor this week. In the world today, anything is possible!

We began with a detailed and encouraging review of our Getting Lost exhibition. A shared discussion looking at all the artwork really helped us all to put our thoughts into focus for the week ahead.


Getting Lost : opening night

Not even the weather could dampen the spirits, as the Getting Lost exhibition opened to the public. A fantastic number of guests and visitors enjoyed the creative artwork, as well as chatting to many of the artists involved, and enjoying the delights of asian street food (courtesy of Umis Kitchen). A very successful opening night – don’t forget the exhibition is open 11am to 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday



Experimental Fun with Cyanotype

Last Saturday, much experimenting and fun was had at the Arthouse trying out the Cyanotype process. Preparing and drying our papers and textiles, before exposing them to the sun and seeing what magic developed. Thanks to Kit Martin for sharing all her knowledge and enthusiasm.





Walk, Draw, Book and Story

Wonderful work carried out at Off the Rails Arthouse on Saturday. Called “A Walk, A Draw, A Book, A Story”, and led by Dominique Cameron.

Who knew a walk through Ladybank could be so inspiring!


Reflecting on Drawing as Impulse

The final day of Fraser Taylor’s Summer School gave all participants the chance to reflect on all we have achieved individually and as a group. Creativity of course, but also a great deal of encouragement and emotional support.

And as the dust settles, the early summer sun shines through the window and the Arthouse returns to peaceful serenity.
