Have you ever fancied producing your own beautiful paintings in watercolours, but not known where to start? Jeanne Dron is here to take you through her popular six week beginner’s course, starting with information about paints, papers and brushes, working you through water handling, effects and styles and taking you on to producing your own beautiful paintings! Starting next Monday 26th September, there are still places on this course – so email us at email@example.com, call 01383 271839 or pop in to Maker on Friday 23rd or Saturday 24th to get booked in!
We’ve got loads of new creative workshops coming up at Maker over the next two or three months, so we thought we’d make it easier for you to find just the one you want by listing the dates, times, costs etc in one post.
For more details visit the workshops page on this website. All of the workshops will take place at Maker, 2a High Street, Inverkeithing, KY11 1NN.

Congratulations and many thanks to them from us all at Inverkeithing Arts!

Many thanks also to Sandy Stephen for all of his time, skill and kindness in donating his wonderful work to Inverkeithing Arts and Maker.
The bidder has let us know that they plan to continue the house’s story and give someone else the opportunity to own such a beautiful doll’s house..So, there will be an exciting announcement in the early spring about this. Watch this space…
Remember to pop in to Maker to make your bid for this beautifully hand crafted and totally unique doll’s house, created by retired local teacher Sandy Stephen.

It’s been delightful seeing children’s faces light up as they gaze at the house in Maker’s window!
All proceeds from the sale will go towards running costs for children’s art classes at Maker, and other worthwhile projects, keeping costs down and increasing accessibility as much as possible.
To make a secret bid, pop in to Maker Thursday-Saturday 10am-5.30pm or email email@example.com. We invite bids of £100+ to reflect the skill, workmanship and materials invested in making this stunning doll’s house. The new owner of the house will be announced at 2pm on Saturday 15th December.
