Edinburgh’s Art & Craft Collective is hosting two exhibitions until 31st July: Seascapes and Swimscapes is the work of Borders-based artist Emma Jones, inspired by swimming in the sea, walking on coastal paths and visiting beaches. Working in all manner of media, including linocut, monoprint, drypoint etching, paint and collage, Emma experiments with the interaction of techniques on handmade paper, as well as sketching/drawing – all as a counterbalance to on-screen creation. You are Here is the work of Edinburgh College of Art graduate and graphic designer Christina Robertson. Like Emma, Christina found herself craving a more hands-on creative outlet, and after taking classes at Edinburgh Printmakers she settled on screenprinting, allowing her to incorporate her love for photography. She is a member of the city’s Abbeyhill’s Colony of Artists event, and community mural project The Murally People.
