A TOUR through the history and future of one of the Highland capital's most prominent buildings will form the basis of an online talk.

Wasps (Workshop and Artists Studio Provision Scotland) is refurbishing the B-listed Midmills buildings in the city to create Inverness Creative Academy.

The talk on Thursday will be given by Stuart MacKellar of LDN Architects, presenting a tour through the principal interior spaces, exploring how they have changed – and the changes to come.

Mr MacKellar has overseen the delivery of masterplan proposals for the former Midmills Campus as well as being lead architect for the Wasps development.

He will share LDN’s approach to the Inverness Creative Academy development, including the works that have taken place on the building to date.

“Having witnessed first-hand the effect that the initial phase of development has had on the Highlands’ creative community, we are set on ensuring that the

second and final phase adds to what has already been achieved, whilst conserving one of Inverness’s finest architectural pieces,” he said.

“We look forward to sharing what we have learnt about the building’s past, its present state and our future vision.”

125 Years of Change at Midmills: An Illustrated Talk takes place on Thursday from 3-4pm, via Zoom and Facebook Live: www.facebook.com/InvernessCreativeAcademy.
