The Angus Ross Furniture studio and workshop create museum quality, exquisitely hand-crafted furniture, using local sustainable oak and ash. Angus Ross is an award winning designer sought out by private clients, museums and public bodies across the UK. His team of exceptional furniture makers combine traditional cabinet making, steam bending and the latest cutting technologies. The studio makes tables, chairs, cabinets and functional art for homes, gardens and public places. Perthshire Open Studios is a rare opportunity to visit the workshop and chat to the makers about their work.

My artwork includes 3d sculptural wall art in Harris Tweed, upcycled and re-upholstered furniture, painted lamp bases and lampshades, decoupaged scallops or furniture, felt jewellery and sculptures in air dry clay. I love trying new techniques and testing my skills with new challenges. I established my gallery Artisanand in 2014 in Aberfeldy, I have a workshop in the back so I can make use of my time when not serving customers. In September, as part of the Open Studios Festival, our exhibition will include myself and two other artists who also work days in the gallery, exhibiting and demonstrating the techniques they use to create their artwork. The three include Marianne Dey painter (landscapes, abstracts and printmaking), Lorna Radbourne glass artist (whose studio is called “Catriona Studio” creates stained, painted and fused glass in everything from sculptures to jewellery) and me, Angela Thomson, textiles and furniture (Harris Tweed 3d art, upcycled furniture, decoupage, candles and felted jewellery). During the Festival all three of us will be working in the gallery, we’ll be making time to either demonstrate or discuss the techniques we use at 11am and 1pm each day. Saturday – Lorna & Marianne Sunday – Angela & Marianne Monday – Angela & Lorna Tuesday – Angela Wednesday – Angela & Lorna Thursday – Angela Friday – Lorna & Angela Saturday – Angela & Marianne Sunday – Lorna & Angela Having the gallery allows me to exhibit my art along with the art of other emerging and established Perthshire artists. We offer an eclectic and quirky selection of artwork in many media, including lots of 3D, in a light and bright gallery space, the front of which is entirely glass, the artwork is the focus and there is room to stand back and enjoy.

We are two sisters living in Aberfeldy who have created this wee gem of a shop and typically one of us will be behind the counter. We have a gorgeous range of indoor plants alongside individually made works of art from across Scotland and beyond. We support Local, Scottish and British makers and try very hard to supply something different…..and very gorgeous of course!

Fellow artist Sheila Messenger and I have exhibited together many times in the past, we’re using Sheila’s studio where you’ll be able to see my paintings and textiles. There is a chance to see the inside of a working artists studio and discuss techniques used while watching an artist in situ. There will be a range of works by both of us and we’d pleased to have you visit.

This year I will be exhibiting in Dunkeld. I paint atmospheric landscapes with an emphasis on light and pattern. Figures, wild swimmers, animals and birds sometimes make an appearance. My landscape paintings are mostly acrylic, sometimes involving collage and other mixed media techniques. I work in layers of paint: some translucent some thicker and more opaque, and these are often wiped back or dissolved to reveal details and patterns beneath. I also work in textiles. There will be a selection of small gift items: jewellery, handmade notebooks and sketchbooks and bags.

Karelia House has grown from a small idea into an exciting destination – a destination for anyone who wants only the best. We have a fantastic selection of fabrics, yarns and so very much more! This crafters’ paradise is situated in a very beautiful rural location where the rivers Lyon and Tay meet, some 4 miles west of Aberfeldy. You cannot fail to enjoy your journey through the beautiful Perthshire scenery and the area offers many wonderful activities and retail experiences! If you want the best results, use the best ingredients – this applies to cooking, knitting, patchwork, painting or anything you do and that is the philosophy followed by everyone at Karelia House. Relax in front of a cosy wood-burning stove and enjoy a coffee and home-bake. Our fabulous showroom is bursting with the colour and texture of our yarn and fabric. You can also have a demonstration with our Brother sewing and embroidery machines – these state-of-the-art sewing machines show what amazing creations are possible.

I’m delighted just to see you, so come and enjoy the studio, my garden and the countryside or come and stay for a few nights in the B&B suite or self-catering studio and truly experience my life. You will be able to see interesting art in a stunning setting, where inspiration comes from my home life in Strathtay and my travels throughout Scotland. It’s fun here! My artwork includes cards, originals, prints, textiles and ceramics. Mouse Cottage is situated in the golf course so there is no parking by the cottage. The walk is approx. 100 yards.
