Out of Sight Out of Mind Call for Art

People who have personal lived experience of mental health issues are invited to submit artworks to Out of Sight Out of Mind exhibition.

Last year more than 180 people took part and exhibited installations, projections, films, animations, paintings, drawings, sound works, prints, sculptures, and photographs.

You can submit artworks as an individual or as a group. This year one work per person can be submitted. Artworks can be proposed/submitted in any media and be any size. You are welcome to respond to this year’s Scottish Mental Health Art Festival theme which is ‘perspectives’, however this is not a requirement at all.

We are planning to hold the exhibition at Summerhall in Edinburgh during October 2020. The current situation may lead to changes such as its location, date or the exhibition being moved online. If you make a submission, we will let you know about changes.

How to make a submission: 

Get in touch to ask for the full guidance and submission form. The form needs to be returned to us by Friday 31st July 2020. 

If you would like to speak to us about your or your groups idea/artwork before submitting it, if you have any questions or would like a submission form, please email pam@capsadvocacy.org or leave a message for Pam on 07989402634.

Dried Flower Bouquets + DIY Boxes

Hello!
Boyes Botanics are here with all your floral needs! Whilst there are sadly no weddings or events to create floral designs for, I’ve been focusing on dried flowers during lockdown, creating bouquets and DIY kits.

Bang on trend, dried flowers bring a natural finishing touch to your home, making the perfect gift to yourself or a friend! They are very low maintenance and with the right care can last for years and years – I have my Grandmas dried flowers that are still going strong after 20 years, yes the colours are faded but the lagurus has a lovely ombre effect.

Using mostly beautiful British dried flowers and grasses, there are various bouquet designs on the website along with the new DIY dried flower boxes. The boxes are available in two sizes and are full of loose dried stems for you to cut and arrange how you like.

All dried flower goods will arrive in the new hand stamped botanical packaging, which I’m obsessed with! We are offering FREE local Edinburgh doorstep delivery (EH1-EH17 only) and there is a small postage cost for everywhere else.

Show me the flowers > www.boyesbotanics.com/dried-flowers
Follow our Instagram > @boyesbotanics

Thanks for reading!

Kirsty

P.S – The studio is closed for appointments but we are still open for phone consultations for wedding flowers. Due to 2020 postponements, 2021 is slightly fuller but there are still dates available.

Spring Open Doors – yes, this is happening!

Open Doors Registration
We are planning a St Margaret’s House Open Day on Saturday 27 April 2019.

When?Open Doors
Like last year, the spring Open Doors event will take place on just one day. We will invite the public via our communications to St Margaret’s House from 11am till 6pm on Saturday, 27 of April.

What? 
You can organise a special taster session of your classes, have a temporary exhibition, or simply open your door while you’re working or meditating or yoga-ing!

Sounds good? 
We had more than 1000 people pass through the building doors last year and are expecting similar interest this year too. The Open Day is an amazing opportunity to share the creative diversity that defines St Margaret’s House community.

And now you think…
“Yes I want take part and open my studio” and we answer “that’s brilliant!”.
To sign up and take part in the Open Day please email Irina Stancheva (523.glassart@gmail.com) by 20th of April and let her know your name, studio number and whether you are planning to: help organise the event, open your doors, run a workshop tester etc.

We will distribute fliers, but will not publish a detailed printed programme before the event. Instead, the programme will be shared online the week before the event and a printed version will be available for visitors on the day. Please remember, you MUST have your own Public Liability Insurance (through your A_N membership or similar) and updated risk assessment form by 27th of April.
