to an open studio, printing workshop & beach survey
Two weeks into being artist in residence in Ullapool at An Talla Solais where I am based to research my project into beach litter, I have met many wonderful helpful people keen to help me learn more about the patterns of litter along the beaches in the Wester-Ross area.
I have been working with High School students and next week I will be heading into Aciltibuie and Lochinver primary schools and onto their local beaches with them.
As a member of An Talla Solais I will be showing relief prints in the members show opening on Friday 27th 7-9pm and I would like to invite anyone attending to call into the community room to see the information I am collecting and to discuss the ideas I have for making work in response to it. On Saturday 28th between 2-4 pm I will be running a printing workshop in the Community Art Space at An Talla Solais, everyone is welcome.
As part of my investigation I am looking for volunteers to carry out a beach survey and clean in Ullapool on Monday the 30th, the information collected will feed into the Marine Conservation Society’s national data to record what’s happening around our coast. We will be meeting on the beach below Pollen Park at 12 noon, the survey usually takes about an hour after which we will be cleaning the beach if you have an extra half hour to spare. Please wear or bring waterproof warm clothing and strong footwear. It would be useful to know if you can make it please ring Julia on 07977997605 or e mail email@example.com or just turn up.

I look forward to meeting you all over the next few weeks. Julia
