What does it take to make a great application? Come along and hear from makers who have done it themselves and can offer valuable insights and helpful tips.
This free event is aimed at professional makers living or working in Fife who want to make successful applications for funding, exhibitions, residencies or other projects. We will hear from experienced artists working in ceramics, painting, printmaking and textiles- details below of the speakers. There will also be time for networking, and a chance to ask the speakers questions.
Fiona Thompson is a ceramic artist based in Edinburgh, where she combines her practice with running Cyan Clayworks- a social enterprise and teaching facility. She is also Treasurer for Applied Arts Scotland. She will first talk briefly about AAS, and will then talk about her own experiences of making applications within the context of some of the projects she has been involved in.
Lynette Gray is an established artist and tutor, and runs the studio and gallery at Kinghorn Station. She specialises in painting and offers a variety of regular courses from the studio. During her presentation she will talk about how she combines her creative practice with running a successful gallery and teaching space.
