Hugh Miller's Birthplace Cottage & Museum

9-10 September 2017

Fossil Hunter, folklorist, stonemason, geologist, newspaper editor, social justice campaigner - Hugh Miller was one of the great Scots of the 19th Century. His quests and writings have left a huge legacy of knowledge but as the two adjacent properties testify, he came from ordinary beginnings. The thatched cottage where Hugh was born in 1802 was built by Hughs's pirate grandfather, while the handsome Georgian villa, now an interactive museum, was built by his father. Outside Miller's yard Garden of Wonders is a stunning place to explore the stones and fossils of Miller's natural world while next door the gardens of the Birthplace include a working cobble courtyard, a beautiful cottage garden and a Garden Room - Space for Reflection.

The Glass Studio

new

9-10 September 2017

The Glass Studio at 5 Bank Street was built in 2016 to provide a unique space for glass designer and maker, Emma Nightingale to create her innovative pieces of kiln formed glass and has enabled her to increase production and develop larger scale works including platters, vessels, sculptural pieces, kitchen splashbacks and bathroom panels. The challenges in planning and creating the building included designing a building that would satisfy listed building consent and conservation requirements whilst at the same time providing a space that would work from a glassmaking perspective. The Glass Studio is a one room space - the owner, her architect and main contractor will be available from 11am-1pm and will provide a short overview of the project and the challenges it presented.
