Handsel:

A gift given traditionally in Scotland at the beginning of the year or to mark an acquisition or the start of an enterprise to bring good luck.

An Talla Solais has always relied on the kindness of gifts. Since we opened our doors more than a decade ago, the generosity of friends and strangers has shaped everything we do. 

Your goodwill has let us show exhibitions, run classes, encourage creativity and help artists young and old.

Like many charities, we don't get any core funding so anything is received with open hands and a glad heart.

Whatever you can give will be forwarded by us. We do as much as much as we can for free so anything you give us has the power to inspire, move and transform the lives of others.

Thank you.

Members

Members support us with their creativity and enthusiasm. The scheme is open to artists and supporters alike and offers a range of discounts across classes, room hire and gallery commission. There is also the chance to meet visiting artists and be kept up to date with our newsletters.  Find out about Membership perks and how to join.

Associates

We believe that art makes life richer and our Associates share that belief. Associates make regular donations through the scheme from £5 to £100 a month. The income they raise makes it possible for us to be more financially secure and enables us to plan ahead. Associates allow us to continue achieving our driving purpose: to bring exceptional art to our community and give everyone the chance to take part. Read more about Associates here or email joanna@antallasolais.org.
