A warm welcome back!

As we begin the optimistic road to exiting lockdown, we have some exciting news to share; a fresh spring face to CSSJ and a whole host of workshops, Masterclasses and Summer Schools!

Launching our new website!

Whilst in lockdown the CSSJ continues to be busy, planning the summer ahead and developing its new website showcasing some beautiful film footage shot in the studio. We are thrilled to be working with one of our previous evening class students, Janine Findlay who is the owner and director of Fin Films. Working with Janine (when restrictions allow) we also have planned a series of short instructional videos. Initially focusing on the basics we hope that we will be able to expand these to include more complex techniques.

A further addition to CSSJ is a new administration assistant, Natalie McIlroy who will be assisting Jo with all sorts of CSSJ related odds and ends. Natalie is an artist and curator who lived in Switzerland and the Netherlands for many years before returning to Scotland in January of this year. Any workshop queries, scheduling or future biscuit tin top-ups – Natalie is there for you! 🙂

We are feeling optimistic about the Spring and Summer term ahead and, restrictions permitting, we have scheduled a variety of different workshops for various levels and expertise. We are delighted to welcome talented
makers such as Linda Lewin, Jenny Deans, Shirley Lowe and Christina Hirst as visiting tutors and we can’t wait to see what you all create!
