Creative Workshops on Lismore

By Ros @scotlandphohos

Creative workshops on the island of Lismore

Next month I’ll be taking part in a weekend of creative workshops organised by Mairi Campbell. Mairi has created a programme to inspire, with opportunities to get involved in photography, song, poetry or working with textiles.

Mairi has been running hugely popular fiddle workshops based in Carnie cottage for a number of years. The mix of learning, music, a friendly welcome into the local community, and  the beautiful surroundings of Lismore, has lured many people away for a refreshing and creative break. The newly built studio space beside the cottage, has now opened up possibilities for running a programme of events over a weekend.

‘Sing, Write and Make Merry’ running from 9th – 13th May, is is going to be a fantastic start to what I’m sure will be many memorable events. There will be time to explore the magical island surroundings, and a chance to make new connections at an informal and sociable house ceilidh on the Saturday evening. There’s bound to be music!

As well as my photography workshops, Mairi Campbell, inspirational singer, fiddle and viola player, will be running song workshops based in the new studio at Carnie Cottage. Sarah Campbell of Mogwaii design, who lives on Lismore island, will be using the local environment to inspire her textile workshops. There will also be a chance to join Jayne Wilding, poet, writer and teacher, in her writing workshops  based in the local heritage center.
