I am delighted to be taking part in the Hugo Burge Foundation Makers Market & Open Studios!

Come and see me on the 1st & 2nd June 2023. Timed entry tickets are free* and can be booked online, last entry 3pm, (to give you adequate time to look around).
*If you wish you can make a charitable donation to support the Hugo Burge Foundation to support artist residencies and local community projects, if you donate, you will be entered into a raffle to receive a handcrafted chair from the award-winning Marchmont Workshop.

The Hugo Burge Foundation Studios (situated 500m from Marchmont House), are set around an 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 and this lovely list of folks**) will showcase their works, and a variety of catering outlets.

Marchmont House

Marchmont House, formerly the home of the McEwan family and in particular Rory McEwen , ***one of Britain’s most renowned 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 Hugo Burge Foundation are now developing a place to nurture creators and makers, with studios available to selected resident artists and residencies available through various Scottish arts societies.
***in 2022 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 >>
