And it's all happening in Dumfries this month, Applied Arts Scotland are also rocking up with an event at Gracefield on the 21st - please register to attend here
In this specially put together free program Sculptor David Murphy will talk about his recent commissions with Textile designer Catherine Aitken, for the new Sutherland/Hussey designed Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.
The project sponsored by the Edward Marshall trust was for furniture with a twist. Will Levi Marshall the trusts chair said:
“What’s really exciting about this commission is we are working with a sculptor and textile designer to make furniture…………. not only that but the final designs will be made at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop by the sculptors who practice there. This cross disciplinarian and hands on approach to design is pretty unique and, with the skills of Catherine and David, has resulted in stunning, restrained, utilitarian and beautiful furniture.“
David will talk through the design process and challenges Catherine and he the faced and answer questions about their practice.
Our new CEO at Creative Scotland liked it so much she bought the t-shirt (well coffee table!).
