Frith Crossley, Project Coordinator for The Tartan Fleck looks forward to papermaker Chrissie Heughan’s upcoming workshops at the festival.

After meeting Chrissie Heughan and participating in one of her Edinburgh papermaking workshop, I saw a unique window of opportunity to bring her skills set to Western Australia.

Fast forward 24 months and I am sitting one week away from a project that has grown from its original artisan paper origins to become a collaborative story about the Scots of the South West Capes and their flecks of tartan that colour our landscape.

Today The Tartan Fleck is an all-encompassing community-backed project that includes not only an art exhibition, but highland dancers, choirs, bagpipers, Burns Night suppers, poetry readings and art workshops.

From Monday October 30 international artisan papermaker Chrissie Heughan will touch down on the West Coast. Some would say, to much less fandom than her son, actor Sam Heughan, but here at The Tartan Fleck we couldn’t be more excited to have her with us.

Chrissie will be in town for two weeks of the event and still has limited places available in some of her papermaking workshops. Get in quick if you are interested.

The Tartan Fleck Exhibition will run from Friday 3 November till Thursday 23 November at The Margaret River Cultural Centre’s Foyer Gallery and is proudly co-hosted with Arts Margaret River. Featuring artisan paper made by Chrissie Heughan from local cane sourced from South West Vineyards and art works by; Chrissie Heughan, Alana Chesterfield-Evans, Anita Haywood, Anita Revel, Caroline Juniper, Cate Edwards, Dee Credaro, Elizabeth Johnston, Georgia Podvrsnik, Jenny Sanderson, Kay Gibson, Mandy Ferreira and Molly Coy.

All artworks are for sale and can be purchased from the venue direct or online at The Tartan Fleck website.

Kay Gibson & Chrissie Heughan’s Paper & Printmaking Workshop runs on November 4 at Cowara Studio, Cowaramup. Find more.
