Tubular – Repurposed Inner Tubes

Next in our line-up of Makers taking part in the INVERKEITHING FESTIVE MAKERS MARKET on Saturday 12th December, is another wonderfully creative person from North Queensferry. Lucie Macaulay takes a seemingly prosaic material and turns it into something new and lovely! ‘Retyred’ inner tubes get a new lease of life with Tubular by fashioning them into quirky and original jewellery, toys and housewares. Tubular give new meaning to the phrase reinventing the wheel!
