As always, this year promises an interesting selection of unique and unusual gifts, including a range of craft work from both local and national craft makers, with a range of handmade jewellery, ceramics, woodwork and textiles.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy the work of guest artist, Jackie Stevenson. Jackie studied at Glasgow School of Art and exhibits widely in the UK. As well as her beautiful paintings, we also have her prints and cards. 

Sandy Marshall, Chair of EDLC Trust, said, “This is an annual event that I always enjoy as it’s a really great opportunity to find unusual gifts.

“We will be joined by some very special guests for the opening ceremony including Stepps Songsters, who will be singing some memorable Christmas carols and Santa Claus will be giving out prizes to our Children’s Competition winners.”

Councillor Billy Hendry, Convener of the Place, Neighbourhood & Corporate Assets Committee, added, “The exhibition is a great way to start off your Christmas shopping by coming along and purchasing some truly unique gifts in the lovely atmosphere of the Auld Kirk Museum.

“I would encourage people to come along and enjoy a festive celebration of local art and craftwork.”

The exhibition at the Auld Kirk Museum in Kirkintilloch opens to visitors from 10am on Saturday 3 November and continues until Friday 21 December. An official opening and prize-giving ceremony will take place at 2.00pm on Saturday 3 November and all are welcome to attend. Complimentary hot chocolate and pastries will be on offer.

The museum is open every week - Tuesday to Saturday - from 10am-1pm and 2-5pm.
