Perth Creative Exchange artists and makers are thrilled to collaborate this year with Perthshire Artisans to bring you a superb market and open studios event for all to enjoy this Spring!

You can discover some artistic techniques, bombard us with questions and catch some demonstrations such as print-making and pottery throwing. (And if you were a pupil or teacher at this former St John’s Primary School, you might want to see what we’ve done with the place!)

Oh and if that wasn’t enough we will have two exhibitions running: a group display from students at UHI and Future Ancient by Katie Hallam.
