Beeswax Beauties

A lovely new creative workshop coming up at Maker, 18th November, 2pm-3.30pm. Led by Linda Muir, who has dedicated so much of her time and passion setting up and co-running the beautiful Friary Community Garden in Inverkeithing. The time had come for Linda to pass the responsibility for this wonderful garden, a true community treasure, onto others and take some time for herself. However she is taking the time to pass on the skills of this rather lovely hobby, and we are delighted that she has chosen Maker as the venue to do so.

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).

Look what we made!

We couldn’t resist showing you the results of this weekend’s Art Doll workshop at Maker.

Gnomes and Fairies at Maker

Happening tomorrow and Sunday, 23rd & 24th September, Yelena Gibbons will be leading a two day class, teaching people how to make these incredible art dolls. Yelena is originally from Russia, and has made her family’s home in Fife. In Russia making dolls like these is not only traditional, but a very popular hobby. The attention to detail Yelena puts into her dolls is certainly quite wonderful, and it will be a fascinating class! Her class will run from 1-4pm on Saturday and 12-3pm on Sunday. There is one space left on the class this weekend so get in touch with us at Maker, 2a High Street, Inverkeithing, tel 01383 271839 or email info@inverkeithingarts.org to book the space or register interest in future classes led by Yelena.
