A historical factory in Dundee continues the process of being transformed into a commercial photography studio, with the potential of studio spaces for artists and creatives too, accommodating the increasing demand in the area. The Weaving Shed Studios are having an open night on Thursday June 1st at 6pm.
The open night is an introduction to the space and the start of conversations on the different ways creative practitioners in Dundee could use it.
The warehouse interior is the subject of a Macintosh Patrick painting “The Weaving Shed, Old Glamis Factory” (below) painted in 1929, is located in the McManus gallery. This bit of nostalgia, as well as being very aware of and observing Dundee’s growing arts and cultural scene, inspired Hamish Milne, owner of Bulkbag, to think about alternative uses for the space.
Aware of facilities in Dundee offering artist studios, Hamish is looking to explore the needs of artists who don’t currently use them whilst working alongside existing collectives in the city.
The Photography Studio is now open for business, complete with equipment available for hire.
The event, which will include some live music, will be a good opportunity to get to know and join the conversation about a key space in Dundee, as well as spend the evening with other creative folk in the city.
