Artist looking for old waterproofs and wellington boots!!!
 
While in the Western Isles for the An Sùileachan artist residency,  Joanne B Kaar from Caithness, will be working on a series of ‘Walking Books’: making drawings, annotated sketches, incorporating found objects and photography.  

Joanne will be making her own ‘walking books’ inspired by colours and materials associated with outdoor clothing for walking or fishing.  If you have any waterproofs that aren’t waterproof any more, wellington boots that have sprung leaks or rucksacks that have developed holes and the zips are broken. Joanne would be delighted to give them a new life.
 
Joanne will be staying at the Otter Bunkhouse in Cashader http://www.otterbunkhouse.com/
