First visitors of the year

We have had our first visitors for the year. Already!

A few weeks back we had a visit from MA students from the University of the Highlands and Islands, but this week we have had visitors who have come up for Up Helly Aa. In spite of the short days and cold our most recent visitors have been full of enthusiasm for the islands, mentioning that Shetland's Fire Festival has been on the bucket list for ages. It is always good to see people in the studio and so far we have had folk from the USA, Poland, Germany and Italy. It looks like it is shaping up to be a busy summer.

The season officially starts at Easter so if you do pop in please excuse the upheaval. We are moving things around ready for visitors, and making more space for the collection which is growing and growing. It will all be ready in time but for the moment it is all a little, well, chaotic!
