Coming up this year Bound : unbound members Felicity Bristow and Susie Wilson have been awarded a ‘Landmarks’ Art Walk Porty Residency kindly hosted by the beautifully planted and wonderfully productive Craigentinny Telferton Allotments, they will be starting this year working on their allotment plot #55b and will research into #WorkingtheLand in the area.
From the official Art Walk Porty blog:
Starting their commission at this year’s AWP2019, Felicity Bristow and Susie Wilson will be artists in residence ‘Working the Land’ for 12 months from the garden shed at Plot 55b at Craigentinny Telferton Allotments.
Each weekend during AWP2019 (Sat 7th + Sun 8th Sept and Sat 14th + Sun 15th Sept 2019) they will welcome visitors to their plot [55b] to make seedling pots and seed packets that can be used to get organised for the coming year of planning and growing. Using various printing techniques simple designs will be printed onto brown paper, newspaper and recycled papers and then folded into origami envelopes to house seeds for the seed library the artists are establishing in the shed, or made into pots for growing seedlings. The artists will be in residence at the weekends 11 – 4pm, all ages welcome and any top growing tips appreciated!
This series of AWP residencies are developed by curator Rosy Naylor and are funded by Creative Scotland
