Perthshire Open Studios is now in it’s 11th year, who would have thought that the group of us artists who first met way back in 2006 to plan an open studios event would have created such a successful annual event.

For 2018 we at wildgrass studio have decided on an alternative approach for what has become something of an annual pilgrimage.

Gill is taking a year out to concentrate on her new floral work which is truly wonderful and creations that I am certain will benefit from not being rushed to exhibit this year.

I am continuing to develop my wet plate and alternative process work so this years theme will be free demonstrations in the wet plate collodion process and various alternative printing processes mainly cyanotype and van dyke brown. These are all truly wonderful organic techniques with at times surprising results, a welcome alternative to modern day photographic methods. Many of my latest works will be on sale alongside some of my earlier analogue and digital prints.

Also after the success of our Silver Alchemy event back in March I will be offering discounted wet plate portrait sessions so this is your chance to experience having your portrait taken the victorian way. Details and Prices

Demonstrations can be given on demand but to avoid disappointment or to arrange a personal portrait session please get in touch in advance. We look forward to seeing you in our beautiful and rather remote corner of Perthshire, the kettle is always on standby and there may be some of Gill’s excellent cakes – all gluten free of course.
