Can darkness unlock your creativity?

Lewis-based visual artist Mairi Gillies teaches people how to discover the creative potential of venturing out into the night. For this year’s Hebridean Dark Skies Festival she will lead two inspiring online group workshops.

WORKSHOP ONE – Monday 8 February, 7.30pm-9pm
The first workshop, on Monday 8 February, will equip you with all the tools and techniques you need for some solo night-time art adventures, and help you set some creative goals for the following week.

WORKSHOP TWO  – Monday 15 February, 7.30pm-9pm
The second workshop will offer an opportunity to reflect on your experiences and share your work with fellow participants.

Into Darkness is aimed at all levels of thinkers and makers, from established artists to newbies in the making.

All necessary art materials will be provided but must be collected in advance from An Lanntair. If you need materials posted to you, please contact with your full postal address at least one week before the first workshop.

A weblink for each online workshop will then be emailed to all ticket-holders in advance of the events.

Early booking advised due to limited capacity.

The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival will run from Friday 5 February to Thursday 18 February, and is led by An Lanntair in partnership with Calanais Visitor Centre, Stornoway Astronomical Society, Gallan Head Community Trust, and Lews Castle College UHI.

The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival is part-financed by the Scottish Government and the European Community Outer Hebrides LEADER 2014-2020 programme. We also want to say a huge thank you to Caledonian MacBrayne for supporting this year’s festival.
