Over 70 artists, designers and makers are opening up their workspaces during Open Studios North Fife over the holiday weekend of May 2-4.

Some are artists who work full time and supply international markets, others are recent graduates just finding their place in the art or craft 

A few are semi-retired and have come back to professional art practice after years in other employment, many combine their artistic practice with running workshops or other paid activities so that they can pursue their passion and a large number are people who have huge experience of what they do.

And, by way of celebrating a decade of success all of the artists have been invited to take part in adapting, decorating, embellishing and adding to a basic wooden shed.

Members of the public are invited to visit this colourful and quirky project which is sited at Hill of Tarvit Mansionhouse near Ceres, to see the results.

Organiser Alison Strachan said: “This is a unique chance to meet the people behind the artwork that you adore. Buy, commission or just have a great day out!

“Open Studios North Fife is one
of very few such events which is focused on artists who practice in the area opening their work spaces rather than borrowing
or hiring exhibition venues.

“We know that half the fun is seeing the interesting spaces in which art is created!

“You’ll find clusters of studios only minutes apart and single studios in more rural locations worth going to for the views as well as the work on show!”
