Curious Routes welcomes people who have an interest in collaborating with others and have existing interests and skills they would like to share, or are keen to learn new ones in a supportive, social, creative and light-hearted environment.
Our Basic Mountain Studio base gives us a chance to try out new ideas. We have a very collaborative approach; we work together to explore ideas, investigate common interests and skills that we want to share with others. Our inspiration comes from our conversations that explore a particular interest or skill. Creative ideas develop into something more concrete when we find like minded folk to collaborate with.
Over the years collaborations have brought us together with many different folk. With The Scottish Bee Keepers Association we designed and hand crafted furniture, ceramics and textiles for their annual exhibitions at The Royal Highland show and The Dundee Flower and Food Festival. With Edinburgh College of Art we created an exhibition and interactive programme of activity inspired by play, students participated in film screenings, discussions, screen printing and music making. With Broxburn United Sports Club we worked with an over 50’s group to explore common interests in birdwatching, sports, cooking, drawing, craft and music.
The opportunity to expand out horizons and use our skills in different ways keeps our ideas fresh and our motivation high.
