Now that my shops have closed for the holidays, and the last of the Christmas orders have been dispatched, it’s time to concentrate on another project. Way, way back at the beginning of 2020 (another time, another world) I responded to a call out for artists to submit designs for Light the North – the latest Scotland-based sculpture trail raising funds for cancer support. As with everything else this year, the planned date for the event had to be postponed, so I put it to the back of my mind in the hope that it would happen at some point. Well, I’m delighted to say that Light the North is going ahead in March 2021 and one of my designs has been selected!
I can’t reveal any details of my design at this point but I will be posting updates over the next two weeks of my progress on social media. It’s such an exciting and worthwhile project to be involved in – over 45 fibreglass lighthouses standing 2.5 metres tall, will shine a light over the north-east, Orkney and Shetland to inspire visitors and locals to explore and engage with this beautiful region of Scotland, whilst raising funds and awareness of the vital support provided by CLAN to people affected by cancer. You can follow Light the North on social media to see all the event’s news.
Thanks for reading, and have a safe and peaceful Christmas x
