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. Thanks to Yelena Gibbons for her skillful instruction and to all of those who took part and enjoyed a weekend learning how to make these unique, hand crafted dolls. Further doll making sessions and projects are being planned before Christmas so watch this space, or check our website – www.inverkeithingarts.org – for information about dates and times.

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.

Inverkeithing as art is here…

Catherine Lindow’s beautiful artwork of Inverkeithing can now be seen, looking brilliant in its pride of place, at Maker, 2a High Street, Inverkeithing! You can buy prints of it in the shop, size A3 or A2, or other sizes can be ordered by arrangement. And you can even buy a card of part of the design to send to family and friends. The finished artwork is full of wonderful details and quotes you might recognise if you came into to talk to her during her week long stint as ‘Lindow in the Window’ at Maker.
