Residents at our development of new homes in Winchburgh can join the wider community and express their creative side as part of an exciting art project based close to our Glendevon Grange development.
We have donated our former sales suite cabin to be the new home for Gill White, an artist-in-residence who will be working with the community to create artwork celebrating Winchburgh’s past, present and future.
The project has been named ‘Winchburgh Art Ways’ and Gill will hold workshops in our former sales centre for all ages of local people to create art projects for display across the village.
Gill White said: “Being based in Robertson’s cabin in the heart of Winchburgh will be ideal for sharing our creative ideas over the coming months and I am looking forward to meeting everyone.
“Over the next few weeks you will see me out and about exploring with my camera and sketchbook in hand, collecting inspiration for our upcoming art workshops.”
Karen Mercer, Robertson Homes’ sales manager, said: “We are so happy to have enabled such an inclusive and inspiring project for Winchburgh by giving the artist a base in the heart of the community.
“Everybody, from local school children to our older generations will be able to take part and I hope many of our fantastic new community at Glendevon Grange also get involved to celebrate what makes this such a special place to live.”
The artist-in-residence project is part of the ‘Big W’ public art strategy, managed by a partnership including West Lothian Council, Winchburgh Developments and Winchburgh Community Development Trust.
