You may have thought that Art Walk Porty lasted just for two weekends in September. However, it has long been an ambition of curator Rosy Naylor to have events which last much longer. One of those starts this afternoon at the Kilns in Bridge Street. 

It’s a residency lasting through until the end of February in which the artist, Nicky Bird, seeks to commemorate the lives and work of a group of women known as ‘The Decorators’ who worked in the now long gone potteries in the area. She had considerable help identifying the women and finding photographs from that bygone era from Dr Margaret Munro of the Portobello Heritage Trust. 

David Calder went to meet Nicky at the Kilns to find out more.
