Our Week in Pictures

We can’t believe it is already mid- May! This week we have Sculptor Fanny Christie welding and bronze casting, Gray’s student Mary – Ann Orr forging here for the week, and Thomas Leyland Collins and Sophie Fishel working hard towards their exhibition Smooth & Fruity, 31 May 2013.


Smooth & Fruity, an exhibition brought to you by our Arts Development & Administration Assistant Sophie Fishel and Technical Placement Thomas Leyland Collins. The Private View will be at 6.30pm Friday 31 May…….All are welcome. Thomas has been busy brewing up some home made ginger beer!



Regular workshop user Fanny Christie is in the Main Studio, setting out her bronze pieces she sourced from local scrap yards. She is currently welding the pieces into a deer sculpture, alongside casting her own bronze pieces. For more of her work visit here.



A sneaky preview of one of Sophie Fishel’s pieces she has been working on for her and Thomas’ exhibition Smooth & Fruity. This mixed media installation is one of three pieces she will be exhibiting.


Thomas Leyland Collins working hard on his wax piece, which will soon be ready to cast in bronze. This will make up one component of a larger, kinetic sculpture which he will exhibit in Smooth & Fruity.



Gray’s student Mary Ann Orr is out in the courtyard, forging metal to create a sculpture based on puffins, for her upcoming degree show. We can’t wait to see the work when she’s finished! The Degree Show is at The Robert Gordon University of Aberdeen from 15 – 22 June 2013.
