a little rest…

Maker will be closed over the October school holiday – but will be open again from Tuesday 24th October 10am-5.30pm

Come in past from the 24th to browse our collection of gorgeous visual art and craft, all hand made and produced by local makers.

We’ll also be open for our new drop-in drawing day on Tuesdays 11am-3pm. This will be more of a collective than a class, free, untutored and open to all – whatever your level of experience! Basic materials and equipment supplied (feel free to bring anything you’d like to use).

Central Fife Open Studios has been set up to give professional artists and designers in Central Fife the opportunity to show their work to the public and celebrate the wealth of talent in this area.

The Open Studios offers the opportunity to talk to participating artists about how they create their work, their methods and sources of inspiration. There is also the chance to buy or commission a piece of original artwork from an exciting range of disciplines.

Fraser Avenue photography project – artwork by p4 pupils

The photography project we have been involved in over the last 8 months with the p4 pupils of Inverkeithing Primary saw its final fruition at the school at a ‘share the learning’ event. The incredibly lively and beautiful mixed media artworks, based on the wonderful photographs which the children had taken of Fraser Avenue just before the demolition began and just after the first stage had gone, were turned into a pull-out book. The pupils were justifiably very proud of their art and loved telling their parents and carers about it at the event. See more about this project here

Creative Taster Sessions

Inverkeithing Arts invited three local artists and makers to provide creative activities for visitors to enjoy during a Family Fun Day on Friday 7th April at Inverkeithing Primary School.

Rustic Simplicity were helping visitors to make wooden bird boxes, Rosie Gibson ran  sessions making drawing and models based on participants’ memories, and Catherine Reilly was showing people how to decorate photo frames and jars. Participants did lots of lovely work and enjoyed taking part in the activities, and were fair chuffed with their hand made objects of art and craft to take home, as you can see from the images below.

Inverkeithing Arts are currently having public conversations about possible future participatory arts projects for residents affected by the regeneration of Fraser Avenue and surrounding area. If you live in the area, and have an idea for community projects or public art, get in touch at info@inverkeithingarts.orgor call us on 01383 271839.

The Fun Day was organised by Fife Council’s Adult Learning Local Planning Group, and the creative sessions were supported by Kingdom Housing Association.
