The Oban Times - - DISTRICTS -

MEM­BERS of the Fort Wil­liam branch of the Scot­tish Women’s In­sti­tute en­joyed a talk from a Lochaber busi­ness­woman at their Novem­ber meet­ing.

Ni­cola McCal­lum from the Old Gen­tle­man’s Wardrobe spoke about the aims of her chalk paint­ing busi­ness and how she hopes to give lo­cal artists a plat­form to ex­hibit their prod­ucts.

Mrs McCal­lum demon­strated the unique dec­o­ra­tive paint­ing tech­nique de­vel­oped by An­nie Sloan 20 years ago which rev­o­lu­tionised furniture paint­ing.

The next meet­ing of the SWI will be on Mon­day De­cem­ber 5 at 7.15pm in the Mon­trose Cen­tre, In­ver­lochy, when the guest speaker will be the Rev­erend Ki-Ki MacRae who will speak about his visit to Rwanda. Ev­ery­one welcome.
