Mrs Aileen Ogilvie will open the doors of her studio to the public during the Open Doors event from Thursday, May 23, to the following Monday, May 27.

Her studio is next door the The Scottish Wildlife Visitors’ Centre on the A92 and will be open from 11 am to 5pm.

There will be demonstrations of making stained glass panels each afternoon between 2.30 and 4.30 and a slide show in the mornings.

Mrs Ogilvie also designs and makes Jazzy Jewels - individual designs in glass of pendants, earrings, cuff links and rings.

Commissions include work for private homes and public buildings such as Crieff Hydro, the Scottish Wildlife Visitors Centre and churches in Montrose, Glamis, Inverarity and Kinettles.

There are Saturday stained glass workshops.

Also taking part in the Montrose area are artists Al Munro and Wendy Walker, who are exhibiting at Lunan Bank Farmhouse - about a mile along the Friockheim road from the Inverkeilor bypass. Their opening hours during the event are 11am until 5pm.

And in Inverkeilor Church Hall from 10am until 4pm are artists Annette Thomson, Rosemary Fussey and Marianne Nicoll. Artists will be at work during the event. The hall is in Station Road, which is opposite Gordon’s Restaurant. The hall is on the right, a short way down. If you reach the school you’ve missed it.
