Summer Beach and River Clean-up

So you’ll remember the beach clean last November and the Art is Rubbish project & exhibition that followed in January? Well, we’ve teamed up with the Sailing Club and WASPs artists again and are holding another Clean-up this Sunday, 2nd July, starting from the Sailing Club at 10.30 am and finishing around 12.30.

It’s a great family outing, exploring, discovering and doing a good job for the wildlife and critters along our shore and riverside. We’ll provide soup and tray bakes between 12.30 and 1.30 – by all means bring your own bites too.

We’ll also provide bin bags for rubbish, separate ones provided by Sainsbury’s for your art ingredients, litter pickers and protective gloves. BE AWARE though that we’ve only got a limited supply from Highland Council so if you can, BRING YOUR OWN PICKERS/GLOVES.

This time the artists are going to run a rolling workshop at the Sailing Club immediately after the Beach Clean between 1 and 4, so you can just pop in and try out some ideas for making art from rubbish. Get some quirky stuff on the Beach Clean and you could be well set to win the art competition. Drop your finished artwork off at the Links Studios on the following Saturday, call by during the exhibition the next day and collect your prize at the end of the day. As last year, prizes are free taster sailing sessions in the boat of your choice (from those on the sailing club’s books!)
