For details on the events and bookings : Stencilling Mackintosh discovery days


After some serious snow this past week end Glasgow is waking up to the fact that this year 2018 is the 150th anniversary of one of his most cherished child… Charles Rennie Mackintosh ! #MACKINTOSH150 is the Mackintosh year… a celebration of all things designed, made, dreamed by the man and is wife, sponsored by his patrons and friends here is Scotland and elsewhere in the world. And we are going to celebrate…. in the pure “GLASGOW STYLE”.

For me 2018 will see a new community art project, after #THE BIG ROSE and last year #THE BIG BANNER I though it was time participants dropped their brush and seized their piping bag… we shall make Gesso… many pieces of art work actually 150 of them to celebrate all those years … and many hands will squeeze and draw small and big lines, dots and circles… to make a HUGE installation ALL TOGETHER next October … a celebration of all things Mackintosh !

Keep your eyes posted on this page for the details coming out soonish on this project…. there is will loads of events and it will take place in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Helensburgh, Kirkcaldy, and hopefully in Dundee but anywhere else where I find keen people… if you want to register your interest to take part… drop me a mail @  bettysbeautifullife@gmail.com you can volunteer services or just come and take part in one of the events.

For now ….

Speak to you soon….
