An opportunity to create art in the heart of the city. Our free workshop 'Mackintosh Inspired Art' will take place in the Education and Learning suite of the newly opened Mackintosh at the Willow Visitor and Exhibition centre. It is located next door to the only surviving tea room designed in its entirety by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. As well as housing a world class interactive Visitor/Exhibition Centre, Mackintosh at the Willow is a living breathing museum experience.
The historic building is of the greatest significance for Scotland's design heritage. It is the only tea room where Mackintosh controlled both the exterior and the interior. His arrangement of internal spaces and his designs for the furniture are unparalleled in his designs for tea rooms.
Mackintosh at the Willow have fully embraced this year's theme of 'The year of the young people' by firstly allowing local college students to be involved in the design and manufacture of some of the tea room's furniture. These two traditional buildings have now been given a new lease of life, with one being restored back to its 1903 glory and the other a new purpose with both benefiting local communities and future generations for years to come.
This year also marks the 150th anniversary of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's birth. So come along and be inspired and creative at Mackintosh at the Willow.
