The Christmas shopping season is to get off to a colourful start in Duror
A POP-UP show at Duror and Kentallen Community Centre will showcase a range of work from established artists and crafts people from Argyll and Lochaber, as well as some invited exhibitors from further afield.
A large range of quality handcrafted work will be on display, including pottery, glassware, textiles and woodcarving, as well as limited edition prints, cards, chocolates, soaps, Christmas tree decorations, bookbinding and much more.
Work featured will include bespoke glass by Strontian-based Jean Campbell from fused panels to jewellery and decorations; pottery by Barcaldine-based Hugh MacTavish, including a range of his tableware as well as some one-off pieces; textiles, including cushion covers and lampshades, by Sarah Campbell from Lismore; and scarves and shawls by Dalmally textile designer Liz Gaffney. The lively etchings of Cuil artist Katy Spong contrast wonderfully with colourful lino cuts of Dunkeld-based printmaker Linda Farquharson, and both will also have a range of cards on display. Duror-based woodcarver Rob Coope will be showing a range of carved spoons and bowls.
The show will also feature a postcard exhibition with work by the pupils of Duror Primary School, who will be showcasing their young talent.
It is a while since this sort of event has taken place in Duror and with prices from a few pounds to a few hundred pounds, there will be something to suit all tastes and pockets.
The show will be open from Friday to Sunday, December 2 to 4, from 10am to 4pm.
Admission is free, and profits are to go to the community centre funds.
