EDUCATION AND ARTS

Mairi engages creatively with various audiences from distillery visitor centres, to community groups.

Over a number of years Mairi has honed her knowledge and skills in horticulture and sculpture to create displays of preserved plants. Mairi uses a range of methods from dessication to casting to capture and preserve plant materials as they would be in real life. Clients have included Bombay Sapphire, various visitor centres, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and private commissions.

Mairi also produces interpretation and activities for gallery packs to be used by families and schools visiting visual arts exhibitions.

Through a post graduate degree in Learning and Teaching Gaelic Arts, Mairi has developed her skills to work creatively with community and informal learning groups to encourage and nurture making and thinking- to facilitate spaces for individuals and groups to find their creative selves.
