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.

 

 

UPDATE: 30 MARCH 21

 

Due to the restrictions Kelly hasn’t been able to go into schools as she’d hoped. Instead she has created these fantastic work booklets available to young people local to Wick.

 

Kelly's Roond Ai Harbour booklets

 

‘Roond Ai Harbour’ contains different projects to test and develop your skills as an artist. Your work will then be featured in an online exhibition once submitted! This is the first of three projects and if you complete and enjoy the booklet, you can then go on to being involved in projects 2 and 3.

 

Watch the video below to hear Kelly explain a bit more…

 

 

If you received a booklet and would like your work included in the exhibition, please remember to have them handed back in by Saturday 15 May.
