Meet Oor Floo’ers O' Scotland

The stunning Oor Floo’ers O' Scotland sculpture, painted by the super talented Freya Cumming will be on display in St John's Shopping Centre, Perth until 30th August!

Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail runs for 11 weeks from 17th June 2019 – 30th August 2019, culminating in a series of Farewell Events and nationwide auctions in each of the five host cities, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and Perth, Aberdeen and Inverness.

Scotland’s first ever nationwide public art trail will unite the country as it raises awareness and vital funds for Scotland’s children’s hospital charities. Funds raised through the trail will support Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity and the ARCHIE Foundation, helping children in hospital across the country.

The gorgeous Oor Floo’ers O' Scotland sculpture was designed and created by Freya Cummings, Freya is a full-time Illustrator and Printmaker. She specialises in screen printing and her prints are exhibited in galleries throughout the UK. She also produces a range of handmade wallpapers and stationery which she prints to order, and she regularly undertakes commissions for bespoke pieces.

Freya gives us an insight into her design by saying, “Oor Willies bucket and breeks are covered in flowers from all over Scotland. This design includes not only our national favourites, Heather and Thistles, but some of our rarer flowers too, including the Shetland Mouse Ear, Twinflower, The Alpine Catchfly and Ladies Tresses.”

“I am a wallpaper designer and I wanted = to design something decorative and floral for Oor Willies dungarees. As Oor Wullie is a Scotsman, it seemed only right to cover him in blooming Heather!”
