The Friends of Duthie Park have received funding from Aberdeen City Council Creative Funding to host an Artist in Residence at the David Welch Winter Gardens, Duthie Park during August & September. The Friends have been privileged to employ the services of Shelagh Swanson to act as Artist in Residence.

Shelagh is a local artist who specialises in painting and glass, who has numerous previous experiences of working with schools and as an Artist in Residence within a community setting. For more information on Shelagh you can visit her website (

During the project Shelagh will work with local schools, community groups and will also have drop in sessions for members of the public, visiting the Winter Gardens, who will all be involved in helping to create a large scale fused glass mosaic mural.
