Designers to pop up on the seafront

Three local designers are launching a new pop-up shop, The Nest, in Helensburgh.

Michelle MacCormack (Whittle Bird Furniture), Eilidh Mackay (Tartan Art by Emac) and Tom Butcher (Mansefield Studios) will be showcasing their work throughout March on Helensburgh’s seafront.

The three self-employed designers are collaborating for the first time.

Michelle, based in Rhu, makes and restores vintage and antique furniture,

Cove-based Eilidh produces contemporary art using tartan silhouettes while Tom produces ceramics at his studio in Arrochar.

The Nest will be open from March 1-31 from 10:30am to 5.30pm. Tuesdays to Sundays, at 75 West Clyde Street, Helensburgh, G84 8AX.

The premises on the corner of John Street and West Clyde Street is a former jewellery shop currently bearing the name Second Hand Salvage.

“We decided to call this pop-up shop The Nest because spring is a time to nest and spring-clean, when people clean off the cobwebs and make their homes ready for the arrival of summer,” said Michelle.

“The shop has a lovely, wood-clad Art Deco interior and we decided it would be the perfect place to show off our work, especially now that the Helensburgh seafront works are largely complete.

“With Mother’s Day and Easter fast approaching, we hope the variety of our work will give Helensburgh shoppers plenty of gift ideas as well as tempting them to make that special purchase that will make their own ‘Nest’ complete.”
