ANGUS MCPHEE - Weaver of Grass

ANGUS MCPHEE or MACPHEE was a crofter from Uist who spent almost 50 years in a Highland psychiatric hospital. During this time he chose not to speak - instead he wove a series of incredible costumes out of grass. These he hung on trees in the hospital grounds.

Some brilliant news...

As everyone in the Horse + Bamboo office and workshop is beginning to wind down for our Christmas and New Year break we hear some totally brilliant email this morning from Creative Scotland letting us know that they are going to support a second tour of 'Angus - Weaver of Grass' in 2013. 

What a great piece of news to send us off on our holidays....! 

Nollaig chridheil agus bliadhna mhath ùr (hope we got that right).
