WASPS Studios

Door open days


WASPS Patriothall was originally a bakery and is a building of great character, that still retains many of its orgininal features, including Victorian red tiled walls. It was converted to artists studios in 1984 and now has 52 studios that house 61 artists over 3 floors.

On the 1st floor studio Jenny Smith, award winning artist, creates limited editions of laser cutting drawings and prints. Visitors will have the opportunity to see cutting edge new technology at work behind the scenes. Jenny will be demonstrating laser cutting and etching with sporting theme, on the hour every hour. Take along a JPEG photograph or quote from your favourite Scottish sports person and Jenny will demonstrate the laser cutter on a selection of them.
