Winter School for MA students

January saw the first of our annual Winter School events for students on the MA Art and Social Practice. This optional residential may take place in other Highlands and Islands locations in future, but this time the students got to experience some serious Shetland winter weather! As well as social activities, we held workshops in RAW photo editing and stick weaving, learned about Shetland dialect and visited the Northern Isles, including the heritage centre, boat haven and Saxaford radar station in Unst and Global Yell weaving centre in Yell. It was great to meet some of our distant students beyond the screen for the first time.
