Arts / Second summer showcase coming to Bonhoga

Red Houss
Hilary Grant

THE SECOND of four showcases from Shetland Arts will be on display in Bonhoga from today (Wednesday).

The exhibitions highlight local contemporary crafts.

This showcase will feature work from Gilly B, Hilary Grant, Paparwark and Red Houss.

Gilly B’s work captures Shetland and Scandinavian landscapes through paper cutouts and collages.

Paparwark Furniture

She focuses on traditions and the sea, working with a variety of mediums.

Hilary Grant’s textile studio is based in Orkney. Their speciality is pattern knits using cruelty-free lambswool.

They use knitting machines and finish every piece by hand.

Cecil Tait is the man behind Paparwark Furniture. His bespoke furniture can be modified to individual customer’s preferences.

Mike Finnie at Red Houss creates jewellery, often with Fair Isle patterns and sea glass from Shetland beaches.

He also makes sculptures from copper and wood.

The showcase will run from 21 June to 23 July. Bonhoga Gallery is open Wednesday to Sunday from 10.30am to 4.30pm.
