Artist Katie Smith will be looking to traditional gansey designs used in fishermen’s jerseys for inspiration at a forthcoming print-making workshop.

The event, a tangle print lino workshop for adults, is being hosted by the Scottish Fisheries Museum, Anstruther, on Saturday, February 28.

As well as gansey designs, participants can be inspired by the museum’s collections.

On the same weekend, there is also a free two-day exhibition of work produced by the museum’s Studio at the Fisheries.

The Studio has been a series of imaginative and interactive art workshops for children that focus on skill development.

The younsters have participated in various design processes and inspiration has been drawn from the collections and the natural environment.

The children are currently curating the exhibition, learning how to interpret, label and present the work, and they will also be the show, which is also on Sunday, March 1.
