Blondin Production

We thought we'd share a sneak peak of the blondin in production. This is about half of the final structure - Finn Barlow has been doing a stellar job! If you happen to be out and about along that never-ending A75 in the next week or so, keep your eye's open for some exciting changes near Creetown…
More details to follow!

Creetown Bell Casting - the film

Our event at Creetown last Thursday has been deemed a success, with plenty of chat, exciting unveiling of designs from Will and Lisa and the world premiere of the short film Amy Dee Tighe of the Creetown Initiative made documenting the bell casting weekend. If you missed us up at the Gem Rock, Amy has kindly uploaded the video to share. It already feels like a fair while ago, and the stovies were feeling pretty nostalgic watching it back! Thanks to the fantastic work by Roddy and Kevin at the Mobile Foundry that weekend.

Sculpture Design to be Unveiled!

Exciting things are happening in Creetown this week. Artists from the Stove Network have been working in and around Creetown since January this year, developing a new way-marking sculpture for the town. 

This is the first chance to see all of the work produced thus far coming together, as the final designs for the sculpture are unveiled and artists involved in the project will be on hand to discuss their work on the project. 

We would like to extend an invitation to all those from the wider Stove community and those interested in the project to attend our open evening, which will take place this Thursday, 3rd October in the Gem Rock Museum.
