People Know How’s All Aboard Campaign

Stories Along the Union Canal

People Know How and Polwarth Parish Church have been working together since the last
year, bringing their project All Aboard to life. Together, the Scottish charity and parish
church will run a boat from the Polwarth Pontoon aboard the Union Canal, promoting
learning and positive engagement with the community within this unique environment.
After a successful pilot last summer, the project has been awarded various grants allowing
the partner organisations to near their goal of purchasing their own canal boat. In planning
the purchase, they have been engaging widely with the canal community to find the most
suitable boat with which they can provide the best support.

Now in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak they are finding new ways to continue this
community engagement through their Stories Along the Union Canal campaign. As they
prepare to take this big step forward on the canal, they have been looking backwards, to
the history and memories of this community. These stories and memories have been
compiled into an interactive map on their website and People Know How will be sharing
these stories regularly over the next month, starting Monday 8 June, with an open call for
new entries.

Keep an eye out on People Know How’s social media channels and get involved with the
campaign!

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.

After 20 years living abroad, resident artist Judith Shaylor returned to Edinburgh!

I am a multidisciplinary artist and have lived in Italy, Spain and Germany. I moved back to Edinburgh at the end of December and immediately went in search of studio space in Edinburgh. Finally in February I managed to secure a space in St Margaret’s house and finally started getting back into producing new work. This is abstract work on paper, using maps as inspiration as well as latterly as the surface of the paintings. Once lockdown was put in place, I quickly took a multi media piece I had just started to work on and brought it home, which I have been working on ever since in my living room and at the moment is embroidery and appliqué on raw canvas. I am looking forward to getting back in to the studio to continue with the larger works on paper.
