Volunteers mapped arts projects and points of environmental interest ahead of our expedition to The Northern Isles which is taking place throughout August (sailing around Shetland, Fair Isle and Orkney with a team of artists). The hope is that this research can help as a guide and aid decision making on the journey by boat, which is often at the mercy of the weather, with constantly changing plans, and need for alternative sheltered bays.
Volunteers assisted at our event on the 4th July “The Summer of Upcycle.” The event included three creative workshops themed around upcycling. Free burgers for attendees and tea and coffee. A local makers market with stalls from an upcycled glass company and a few other local makers.
