I founded Camban Studio in 2018 to share my passion for design, colour, texture, print, pattern, beautiful materials. and the natural beauty of my home landscape in Scotland.
I graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in Product Design and then went on to train as a Jeweller, working on commissioned fine jewellery pieces. I now work from my studio at Deemouth Artist Studios, Aberdeen, having returned to a childhood love of textiles and hand stitch.
This is Camban Bothy...
GRID REF: LR 33: NH 0533
bothy, (ˈbɒθi/), noun
(in Scotland) a small hut or cottage, especially one for housing farm labourers or for use as a mountain refuge.
Camban Bothy is located at the far West end of Glen Affric -part of the Clan Chisholm lands from the 15th to the mid 19th centuries. Chisholm is my maiden name, so I'm Clan Chisholm, hence the name Camban Studio!
My studio is located at the fabulous Deemouth Artist Studios in Torry, Aberdeen, which is home to a growing, vibrant and supportive maker and artist community.
The makers and artists I work alongside provide numerous opportunities for networking and collaboration and there's always inspiring activity happening. Visit our Deemouth Artist Studio Website for more information and to sign up to their dedicated mailing list to be informed about different on site events and workshops.
