Our Zoom coffee mornings are an opportunity for Applied Arts Scotland (AAS) Members to be in good company to discuss, reflect and share thoughts, experiences and more. And very often, with an added dose of joy and humour!
Started in April 2020 as part of our #RethinkingourRhythms programme, coffee mornings provide a space for Members to rethink their own rhythms, whether professionally or personally in a supportive online space. As our Membership grows, so do our coffee mornings (including into the afternoons)!
Regular Member Meet Up
10:30-11:30, last Friday of the month
Our regular Member Meet Ups are an informal opportunity to simply catch up or consider a timely theme or topic AAS are exploring and believe is relevant to our Members. Members are encouraged to propose themes and topics for exploration.
Older Makers Get-Together
10:30-11:30, first Friday of the month
‘As we age, what we are looking for is the acknowledgment of our continuing professionalism, and the need for some kind of support to carry on with our individual practice.’ Alison Bell in the Creativity Doesn’t Stop with Age blog.
Launched in March 2021, and led by AAS Advisors textile artist Alison Bell and jeweller Ann Marie Shillito, these informal get-togethers are for well established, experienced and mature makers to chat about what matters to them now and developing their creative practice throughout this important life stage.
