Doors Open day talks #GlasgowDOD

For many years now September has brought a treat along with the doors open day #DOD for a whole week end with a week end crescendo a great number of buildings all over Europe open to the public free of charge. A great chance to discover local history, enter secret places and lean a great deal about magical places. This has been going for a good number of years and I was delighted when I arrived in Glasgow to see that this great Festival was vibrant with lovely venues and events.

Along the years I have discovered little by little most places and I am looking forward to this years festival. But for one good reason, this time I will be taking part. I will be joining the #heritagetalks of the Festival to share my knowledge in #heritagestencilling with the Glasgow public. I will talk about my experience with #Thehouseforanartlover 20 years ago this years in rebuilding an authentic #mackintosh scheme. I will also talk about more recent work I have done in #victorian and #turnofthecentury buildings at #TheGlasgowGuild

my work at The House for an Art Lover


Two of my most favourite venues have agreed to host my talks:

  • The House for an Art Lover built in 1996 but designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in the early 1900’s. I realised the stencilled scheme. It is a beautiful building open to the public today. I will talk and demonstrate about Mackintosh stencilling. I will give talks
  • The Glasgow Guild a specialised furniture restorer, uphoslterer and polishing workshop. I have worked with the Glasgow Guild on some occasion in refurbishment of listed buildings. I will talk there about historic stencilling and running workshops.
