Demos & Workshops

Throughout the weekend there will be live art demonstrations, talks, and artist-led workshops, suitable for all ages.

Each invited artist uses unique and diverse techniques and mediums, so the demonstrations will be varied and educational. Artists will talk about their processes and where their inspiration comes from, plus there will be the opportunity to ask questions and chat with our experts.

Seating will be available for you to sit back and enjoy watching the work develop.

There will even be opportunities for you to take part, have a go and, create your own masterpiece!

Listings and timings of events will be published here soon.

Competitions

We really want the local community to benefit from and, get involved with the Borders Art Fair.

With that in mind, we are working with Scottish Borders Council Arts Education Department to put together some age appropriate art competitions for local children.

Not only will there be prizes up for grabs, but the winning entrants will have their work exhibited at the fair, to celebrate Scotland’s Year of Young People.

Details of competitions will be published here, and sent out to all local schools.

If you are involved with, or run, a local youth organisation and would like to be involved, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
