Rubha Riedh, Scotland
Registration Deadline: January 31, 2013
Imagine endless sky, rugged shores, exquisite long, long days and lingering sunsets. Imagine a cozy room, in a working lighthouse, miles from any town. Imagine yourself and a group of like minded artists making paper and printing, transforming your observations into a unique artist's book. This 10 day extraordinary experience, including the longest day of the year, is the latest edition to WSW's international programs.
Our Italy based Program coordinator, Susan Fateh came across Rubha Reidh – Gealic for "smooth point" (pronounced Pooa Ray) this magical place, while searching suitable workshop sites in her native Scotland. Built in 1910 by a cousin of the writer Robert Louis Stevenson, Rubha Reidh is located on the West Coast of Scotland, faces the Isles of Skye and the Hebrides which are clearly visible on most days, and is witness to a wealth of wildlife such as otter, seal, dolphin, basking shark the occasional whale and many types of birds.
Nestle into the cheerful accommodations of the fully renovated Lighthouse Keeper's Quarters. Two rooms will be single-occupancy and three are double-occupancy. A spacious, stone-flagged conservatory will serve as studio. Meals will be taken outdoors whenever possible.
Printing at the Edge
Tatana Kellner and Susan Fateh
Inspired by our fabulous surroundings, we'll create artwork that explores the expansive views and the timelessness of the site. Taking the water's edge as a starting point, we'll concentrate on making a series of pieces, paying particular attention to the idea of edges and edginess, in all its possible permutations. We'll explore this concept with handmade paper with its irregular deckled edge, trace monoprints, stencil printing, traditional monoprints and chine-collé incorporating additional found material into our prints. We will work on a modest scale and explore the potential of long accordion artists' books as a form, which can be both intimate and expansive.
