I am delighted to be taking part in the Marchmont Makers Market & Open Studios again!

Come and see me from the 19th to the 20th of August 2023. Timed entry tickets are free* and can be booked online.

Marchmont Studios (situated 500m from Marchmont House), are set around the old stables courtyard (beautifully restored in 2020), and are normally only open by appointment, so this is your chance to visit and talk to the makers along with some resident and visiting artists. There will also be a ‘Makers Market’ where local makers (that’s me) will showcase their works, and a variety of catering outlets.

I will be exhibiting in a Makers Market Stall, which are in larger tents this year, again bringing a botanical flavour to the weekend, I’m looking forward to displaying some of my new fabrics and wallpaper at the show, alongside prints and cards.

Tickets will be available for the event – book here >>

Marchmont House

Marchmont House, formerly the home of the McEwan family and in particular Rory McEwen , **one of Britain’s best botanical artists, (responsible for the resurgence of botanical art as a popular art form and for introducing botanical art into the modern contemporary space), is now owned by the Burge family. Oliver and Hugo Burge took on the restoration of the house and estate, and Hugo Burge​ established a fantastic sculpture and art collection. The Marchmont Makers Foundation are now developing the estate as a place to nurture creators and makers, with studios available to selected resident artists and residencies available through various Scottish arts societies.
**Last year I attended a day of celebration of Rory McEwen at Marchmont house, ‘Spirit of Roy McEwen‘, if you are interested in the event read more about it >>
Marchmont House also offer tours of the house periodically, again I’d recommend these, I was lucky enough to go on the curators tour last year!
