Heriot Toun in summer

What's Happening Now?

There's no formula to when people want to visit the studio. Sometimes winters are busy and summer is relatively quiet. This year summer is especially busy, so if you'd like to book a few days with us please do it soon before it's all filled up!

Everyone is welcome here at Heriot Toun Studio.

Art North

Art North

A new quarterly and online magazine to connect, inform and promote the art and artists of Scotland and the far north.

"Art North has been founded precisely to act as a point of contact via which a range of artistic and critical voices can come together and be heard, thus serving as a meaninful conduit for the outward flow of information about all that there is to celebrate about our arts from 'the margins'.
To achieve the broadest coverage of the arts and crafts that we report on, our team of writers and critics (located in twelve countries) has been assembled to fully represent even the remotest of locations - from Fair Isle to Faroe islands, Tromsø to Tiree."

'Ninth Street Women' by Mary Gabriele: Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell,Helen Frankenthaler: Five painters that changed the movement of modern art.

Out in autumn 2018, this story of postwar art world has been told many times over, but by wresting the perspective from the boozy, macho brawlers who tended to fixate on themselves and one another, Gabriel has found a  way to newly illuminate the milieu and upend its clichés.  You can listen to Mary Gabrielle in conversation at the Whitney Museum of Modern Art.

Kirsty: boat news

Kirsty: boat news

We're often asked about our old gaff ketch, 'Kirsty' who, amongst other things is the hub of many of Pat's projects. So we've given her some space here for all the nerds who are interested in paint, varnish and general boaty stuff. For everyone else, look away now.

That's us in the water, safely launched and ready to go. Kirsty is looking great with fresh topcoat on the hull and toerail courtesy of Butinox (just the best durability). Looking forward to the season ahead! Photos of Kirsty can be found on our Instagram account  #kirstylochfyneskiff

Heriot Book Hut

Heriot Book Hut

Our village of Heriot now has a wee book hut where folk can come and borrow, swap, buy (for a small amount) or donate a book. Initiated by friend, writer and Heriot neighbour, Stuart Kelly, the hut is sited in the grounds of the church. It will be based here until it goes to its new home at the village hall where there will eventually be a new extension.

The book hut will be open Friday afternoons 2-4.30pm and Saturday mornings 10am-1pm. All welcome.
