ARTIST's OWN PRINTMAKING STUDIO
GILL THOMPSON - Harbour Print - Artist/ Printmaker
Gill is an artist and printmaker based in Vatisker on the Isle of Lewis.
She uses a variety of printmaking and mixed-media techniques, sometimes combining more than one, to create original prints that are inspired by the amazingly rich textures and colours of the Outer Hebrides.
Gill makes small, unique hand-made books using her mono-printed papers, collages and sketches to tell visual stories of the island.
She also has cards and original linoprints as well as framed and unframed collagraphs.
Gill teaches printmaking workshops for Anlanntair, Stornoway, workshops in the Lews Castle Grounds and from her studio in Vatisker (by arrangement). She enjoys sharing her love of printmaking and is keen to support other artists on the island.

CLAIRE DEDMAN - Wild Isles Jewellery
Inspired, designed & produced, down by the sea…
Claire makes original and beautiful jewellery, handcrafted and inspired by the stunning landscape of the Islands.
She feels blessed to live by the beaches of North Tolsta.
Being Autistic, Claire believes this helps her with the creativity of each piece - it also allows her to view the islands with its rugged coastlines in a slightly different light and she hopes that this translates within each piece.
