  • What a lovely day… | Milomade
    part of it The idea of the creative exchange is to offer your skills to another person for free and in exchange someone else will offer you their skills for free and all in all everyone learns something new experiences something new meets new people etc etc So I ve been teamed up with two talented Fifers Jill Calder an illustrator based in Cellerdyke who is going to teach me how to use my Wacom tablet that I bought a million years ago and never used shocking I know and also Pat Bray a local artist who is based in East Wemyss who was after some help with Facebook and other online networking stuff So I went to Pat s today with the dog and instead of messing about with Facebook we just talking a lot about art our work exhibitions open studios creative exchanges etc and it was great I love having conversations like this as I come out of them full of inspiration and creative ideas I also discovered that Pat is a bit of a master framer and has all the high tech gear and so might have to ask for a lesson or two in making frames at some point in the near future in exchange for something I can teach her One thing we talked quite a bit about was Open Studio events in Fife or the lack of them in Central Fife Ever since I moved to Fife I ve found it odd that the North Fife Studios and East Neuk Fife Studios run open studio events throughout the year and yet in this part of Fife there is nothing and I ve always wanted to get something going but not had a studio of my own until now Also it s only since I moved to Kinghorn that I ve started to get to know and make connections with other artists and creative folk I really am interested in running my own open studio events from my home and would like to get other people involved at the same time whether they re in Kinghorn or a bit further afield I was hoping to open my studio to the public at some point before Christmas this year but that might not happen as I ve still not moved back in there yet but the plasterer is coming on Monday and the chimney guy is also coming next week to fix my fire so there is hope if I get busy myself in there too But if I don t manage it this year I will certainly do it in the new year All the people I have spoken to about this showed a keen interest so I know it can happen someone has just got to get it started and I really don t mind giving a go and seeing what happens I ve already got ideas about setting up a website and featuring all the artists involved on that and everyone would

  • My Military Operation… | Milomade
    I could be back home for 3 30pm as he needed the car so I was now up against the clock too Could I plan to get this all done in a few hours in one trip Oh yes with military precision where s my clipboard Here s a map of my route Far better to do it all in one journey than 4 or 5 separate trips wouldn t you say My first stop was Freuchie to meet a guy called Matthew who had some PegBoard for me The sheets were a lot bigger than I imagined which was a great and luckily we managed to squeeze them all into the back of the car with no issues As a special bonus I also got a box of about 40 bright orange plastic storage boxes no idea what I ll use them for but I know they ll come in handy for something and if not I can always give them away All I need to do with the PegBoard is paint each sheet white and then create a frame for each so that they can be hung up on the wall need to get hold of some pegs and then I can start using it Very excited about my studio makeover and hopefully it will all get done before Christmas as I really miss having a studio The next stop was St Andrews to meet the very patient and lovely John someone who s been holding onto a folding card table for me for several weeks ever since I spotted it on Freecycle I thought it would be perfect to use at craft fairs for an additional little space designated for wrapping and packing but also making I was going to pick it up before going to London but then changed my mind John works in the Maths building at the University and so I headed there I don t normally drive into St Andrews via Cupar so I was a bit disorientated when I got there as I had my route going round my head which didn t correspond with the route I had taken so much so that I didn t realise that I d driven past the university buildings on my way in and had to do a roundabout kind of route to get back to where I started which made me a little late I also parked in the wrong car park which meant that John had to walk quite a distance to find me Oh dear He was very nice about it all though and the table he gave me is perfect It s not too big so totally portable and it folds flat in a very neat way I love the locking mechanisms on the legs for when you unfold them that keeps them straight It ll come in handy in my studio too as it s the perfect size and height to be the base for my mini photo studio tent
