Up on the Hill, overlooking the Firth of Clyde there is a superb house, designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh for one of his favourite client Mr Walter Blackie.
The Hill House is the very first Mackintosh property I ever visited when moving to Scotland. Its a beautiful building covered of white rough cast, in the Scottish Baronial style in the middle of a beautiful garden. Last week when I visited the garden was covered with Fritillaries one of Mackintosh’s favourite flower. The Gardener Gavin does such a great job of it…
But then he would have to be inspired with such beauty around. Have you visited the Hill House ? Have you seen the beautiful stencilling of the seating room and of the master bedroom?
I will be running a stencilling workshop at The Hill House on the 29th of August. If you would like some information or to prebook look Here ! Or Here
We will be exploring stencilling with acrylic paint on paper and fabric and each participant will be leaving with a stencilled cushion cover in the Mackintosh Style. The class will start at 9.30 and will be complete by 11.30. If you have not done so before you will be able to visit The Hill House at a concession price. But in any case you will be able to enjoy a walk around the beautiful garden of the House and admire the view.
The workshop is for all levels and lasts 2 hours, all material are included in the price.
I will be looking forward to meeting you there.
