October 2012 – The Red Door Gallery at RBS Museum Lates with A Wooden Tree
October 19th saw The Red Door Gallery Pop Up returning to The National Museum of Scotland for their evening event, “Behind The Masque”. Kirsty Anderson from A Wooden Tree was on hand to help all the evening reveler’s create their own Owl Mask. Inspired by the Museum’s current exhibition ”Kathryn The Great”, Kirsty’s creative talents were demonstrated through her clear design work, instructions and adaptation of every-day materials such as coffee filters and paperclips into eye-catching crafting materials! The best Owl Mask will be selected by Kirsty to win one of her Mr Stag heads, worth £48! This competition is open until November 3rd, so please check our blog page to enter.
The Red Door Gallery team were on hand as usual with works from Seymour, The Lindstrom Effect, Karoline Rerrie and of course, A Wooden Tree’s fabulous animal fabric plushes were perfectly at home with the museum’s real taxidermy exhibits.
We hope you enjoyed the night if you were able to make it, but if not then you needn’t miss out. A selection of A Wooden Tree’s goodies are available on our ONLINE SHOP if you can’t find what you are looking for then just get in touch with us!

Autumn 2012 – ‘Forest’ (an exhibition of work and window feature by Karoline Rerrie)
Karoline Rerrie displays her collection of ‘Folk Trees and Folk Art’ inspired screen prints in a window feature she has created especially for The Red Door Gallery.
Karoline’s ‘Folk Trees’ have literally walked off their pages and a little forest of them has sprung up overnight. She has brought the trees to life, giving them newly found 3 dimensional forms by combining screen printing, card, cutting, fabric and even a bit of sewing.
From Silk screen prints, colouring in books, cards and collaborative projects alike, Karoline’s works have been exhibited in The Red Door Gallery since 2009. Her new work is as detailed as ever, come in and let us know what you think?
We look forward to seeing you, but if you can’t see us in person then you needn’t miss out. A selection of Karoline’s goodies are available on our ONLINE SHOP if you can’t find what you are looking for then just get in touch with us!
What’s at The Red Door Gallery – our summer news!
Anyone who has visited The Edinburgh Festivals will be aware of the incredible impact they have on our city. Edinburgh truly comes into it’s own during August each year, becoming more vibrant, unpredictable and inspiring!
This year sees the Olympic Games adding extra impact with Edinburgh’s very own Olympic Rings installed right in the heart of the city, visually connecting Edinburgh Castle to the well illustrated world of Greek Myths & Legends.
Our festival exhibition is a dynamic collection of prints, sculptures, jewellery and homewares, with an gentle nod to the historic myths, legends and traditions being celebrated in Edinburgh and Great Britain this month. We are open from 10am to 6pm every day during the festival and are working like true Olympians this month in keeping our gallery looking fresh and vibrant .
We look forward to seeing you this summer, but if you don’t make it in then you needn’t miss out. A small selection of our goodies are now available on our ONLINE SHOP and if you can’t find what you are looking for then just get in touch with us!
