West Kilbride is Scotland’s first accredited craft town and The Barony Centre is the jewel in its crown.
The current exhibition, ‘Radical Craft’, was co-curated by Laura Hamilton, one of Project Ability’s board members, so the walking group took a trip by train to have a look.
You will see in the photographs that it is a wonderful and varied show with a fascinating range of materials and methods used in the making of the images and objects.
The group spent a long time looking at the exhibition with some guidance and information from Laura before cups of tea and a walk through the village.
There were several artist studios and shops along the way, most of which were unfortunately closed for the day, but a basket-making workshop was open and the group popped in there to have a look around and make a purchase.
This wonderful exhibition runs until 11th June so there is still some time to visit. You can find more information at http://www.crafttownscotland.org/forthcoming-exhibitions-2017/
