Summer Artfest ’16 – Saturday 18th June – Inverkeithing Civic Centre

The work of Karen Trotter is inspired by the coast of Fife where she lives, she makes artefacts made from upcycled beach finds, which are wonderfully sculptural, and sells art prints and cards of her original paintings, which are inspired by sea life and the natural forms of the sea. on-the-shelfnw

The Barbary Wood – for the love of vintage

Inspired by a love of vintage style, The Barbary Wood creates costume jewellery, using reworked beads, faux pearls, faux amber, crystal, Art Deco style beads and U.S. brass stampings. The vintage feel also extends to mixed media artwork, greeting cards and collage, all handmade with paper and found objects which are machine and hand stitched.

You can indulge your passion for this nostalgic and romantic look at The Barbary Wood’s stall at our ART:JAM on Saturday 12th September in Inverkeithing Civic Centre, 11am-4.30pm

Sea glass and sea pottery from Fife’s shores

“I collect sea pottery, sea glass and washed up slate near my Fife seaside home. I use the pottery to decorate various shapes, and I carve and paint celtic designs on the slate.”
