Creative Play & Family Heirloom

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. A wonderful opportunity to give a special child hours of creative play, while adopting a new family heirloom. 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 info@inverkeithingarts.org. 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.

Inverkeithing Arts are a not-for-profit organisation run by artist volunteers. You’ll find our arts hub and gallery at Maker, 2a High Street, Inverkeithing.

‘Love is like a dizziness’

What is love? Passionate new love which sets your heart all a flutter, or the deep abiding trust and warmth of a long partnership? We all have different experiences of love, but the most important thing is to tell your loved ones what they mean to you.

If you are thinking of getting your loved one a token of your feelings, what could be better and more fitting than something lovingly hand-made by local makers? We have a truly wonderful collection of covetable objects at Maker, 2a High Street Inverkeithing – and as a bonus we will be posting a series of Scottish love poems, exploring the many forms of love – until St Valentine’s Day on 14th February. Enjoy!

 

O, Love, love, love!

Love is like a dizziness;

It winna let a poor body

Gang about his biziness!

James Hogg (1770-1835)
