Tartan Folk Gallery

I have had great fun doing the tartan folk workshops with kids and adults, guiding them in the creation of their own tartan persona, starting off with a portrait photo of themselves which is then superimposed onto a template figure. It’s a very relaxed activity with lots of lovely tartan fabrics, laces and other embellishments on hand to decorate their characters with and can be as whacky, funny or beautiful as they want the finished portrait to be. Kids and adults alike love creating these characters and I am always amazed by their creations. The finished art work could hang on a child’s bedroom wall or be a lovely gift for a relative or a friend.

I can offer this activity to a family or small group of children at my studio in Edinburgh.
