Meet Your Maker: Look Inside at Aberdeen’s Look Again Festival
Artist group Look Inside will be hosting a Meet Your Maker event during Aberdeen’s inaugural Look Again Festival. Four makers from a variety of disciplines will give a rare, behind-the-scenes look at their craft work, teaching visitors about their inspiration, practices and profession.
Look Again is a new visual art and design festival for the North East of Scotland, delivered by a partnership between local art agency SMART and Robert Gordon University. Building on the highly successful RGU LOOK festival, Look Again is a five-day celebration of visual art and design, of culture and creativity and a programme of creative events to engage the wider community of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.
During Aberdeen’s inaugural Look Again festival, running from Wednesday 08 to Sunday 12 April 2015, artist group Look Inside will host a Meet Your Maker event to coincide with their pop-up design shop. The group is made up of illustrator, jeweller and textile artist Gabrielle Reith; ceramicist Mags Gray; and jewellers Aubin Stewart and Anne Marquiss.
The pop-up shop will be housed in the former Robert Gordon University Student Union, on Schoolhill in Aberdeen. The collective will customise this space into a shop to display the makers’ products and some additional works by invited North East designers.
There will be workstations where visitors can see behind the scenes of the makers’ work; they will be showing and demonstrating their design and making processes over four days during the festival, engaging in meaningful discussions about their work.
