CAIR: Kelly Munro

 

Kelly Munro grew up in Wick and went to Edinburgh College of Art to study Jewellery and Silversmithing where she graduated with a first class honours degree. Kelly is heavily inspired by Wick’s historic fishing industry and harbours.

 

After living between Edinburgh and Glasgow for the past ten years, she has relocated back to Caithness where she has now set up her new workshop. Kelly is really enjoying settling back into the Caithness way of life, long walks soaking in the vast Caithness skies.

 

Kelly will be our Wick Artist in Residence, exploring issues highlighted in the Wick Locality Plan. She will be working in Wick with local young people to explore their maritime heritage and identity through metalwork and design.

 

We will be following Kelly closely and will keep you updated as the project unfolds.
