ANOTHER short series of contemporary craft workshops organised by Fife Contemporary Art & Craft is to begin this month.

Like the previous workshops that ran during February and March, they’re aimed at giving adults a taste of a specific activity, and could lead to a more sustained enjoyment of a particular craft in future.

Once again they’ll be held in The Vic, 1 St Mary’s Place, St Andrews, with each session running from 10am–noon.

The series kicks off on Saturday. May 19, with a jewellery-making session with Roisin Connolly, who works with precious metals and traditional techniques, including etching.

Using wood and a variety of recycled materials, Roisin will demonstrate how to create a fun and colourful addition to any jewellery box.

On Saturday, June 16, Susie Wilson will be demonstrating the art of origami book making. Using found and recycled papers, the class will learn how to use origami folds to turn a simple piece of paper into a sculptural book.

All materials are included for each class and refreshments will be provided.

Further workshops are planned for September onwards. To receive details, contact jane.gowans@fcac.co.uk.
