Open Day success

1279 people visited us on our Open Day on Saturday 16 November! 

Our first Open Day in our new home, Castle Mills, was a real success, with 1279 people coming through the door. 

In addition to our two gallery spaces, three permanent commissions and Cafe Ink, there were drop-in creative activities for children in our learning studio, short printmaking workshops and demonstrations for adults and children in our printmaking studio


Visitors also had an exclusive peek at our meeting room and boardroom that are for hire for events and meetings. 

Our Creative Industries Studios were open to all. People visited interior design Georgia Victoria, video production company High Tide Media, architect MAArchitects, and tattoo studio The Keep. 


Craft Scotland also opened their doors and visitors met Jeweller Jonathan Boyd who talked about his new book, Jewellery Manifest.

Thanks to all who made this a great day, including our staff, members who volunteered to deliver workshops and demonstrations and all our visitors!
