Discover Your Creative Side at the Deemouth Workshop Weekender

Deemouth Artist Studios is gearing up to host its first-ever Workshop Weekender from July 26th to 28th, 2024. This exciting event, set in the heart of Torry, will feature a series of creative workshops led by the talented residents of the studios.

Located at the Deemouth Business Centre, the studios have long served as a creative sanctuary for artists, designers, and makers. The Workshop Weekender extends this creative spirit to the community by offering a range of sessions, from brief two-hour introductions to immersive full-weekend experiences.

The workshops are designed to cater to all skill levels, ensuring that everyone from novices to experienced artists will find something to engage with. You will have the unique opportunity to work directly with local artists, gaining firsthand insight into various artistic techniques and practices.

You can join hands-on activities, including exploring stitching techniques in a Stitch Jewellery Workshop to create unique jewellery pieces. There's a chance to decorate ceramics in the Introduction to Underglaze workshop, where professional guidance will be provided. In the Create a Wall Hanging session, you’ll dive into the art of screen printing on fabric.

For those interested in jewellery making, the Torch Fired Enamel Earrings workshop will teach the intricate process of making enamelled jewellery. A series of Loom Weaving Workshops offer a chance to learn about table loom weaving and fabric construction, allowing you to bring your unique designs to life.

These workshops are a chance to learn new skills and experience personal creative growth in a supportive environment. The event is a lively exchange of ideas designed to encourage you to express yourself through the work you create.

This inaugural event promises to be a great addition to Aberdeen’s cultural calendar, providing a platform for local artists to showcase skills and for the community to engage deeply with the arts.
