What you'll do

I am hoping to share my house, garden and art with people. I would like to give inspiration to anyone interested in art or creating art, perhaps in designing a similar lifestyle or with questions about the art world. I invite folk to come and explore my space and my work and to bring any questions they may have.
Other things to note
The experience will largely be dictated by the guests' engagement: questions on influence, techniques, inspiration, practical aspects, ideas etc. Artwork ranging in price from 50p upwards available.

I'm an Edinburgh based, self-taught artist. I have been creating artwork and teaching the piano for the last 30 years. Ten years ago I bought a dilapidated bungalow on the south eastern edge of the city and have been gradually transforming it. This has enabled me to follow my dreams of making a garden, painting, sculpting and teaching all in one place. I have work in private collections worldwide, on bookcovers etc. People can check out my website for more info: www.ruthaddinall.co.uk, but my aim with this Experience is for folk to have direct contact with my work and with me and my space.

Where you'll be

You will visit me in my home/studio and have a unique glimpse of how I lead my life: my art studio, my work, my garden. It is an unexpected space out in the suburbs and shows what can be done with very little. The space isn't huge but is very rich with artwork everywhere and plants and birds in abundance.

Ruth is a delightful host as well as an astonishing artistic talent. Her home-cum-studio is a veritable Aladdin’s Cave, a cornucopia of plentiful, outstanding and fascinating works on canvas or sculpted in clay, wood or metal. Ruth herself has an engaging, light-hearted and optimistic demeanour that was welcoming to me, as I suspect it will be to any visitor making the 15-20 minute bus-ride out of central Edinburgh to experience and appreciate her art. And her coffee tastes great!”
