This project explores Craft within Fife’s farming landscape with an exhibition and drop in sessions.
‘Taking inspiration from Scotland’s Themed Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017, the project will look at three inland crafts through the eyes of contemporary craft artists from Fife and beyond who are re-inventing methods of design and production.
Fife Folk Museum in nearby Ceres features traditional and historical crafts associated with a rural environment and provided the source for the choice of crafts to be included in the project.
Work by the selected artists – John Creed (blacksmith), Chalk (plasterwork) and Julia Complin (weaving) – will be exhibited in a shipping container brought for the event next to Cupar’s iconic agricultural silo which is now run as an arts venue by Silo Projects.
During the week craft artists will also work with local schools, Stratheden Hospital and volunteers at Fife Folk Museum to introduce local people to the knowledge and skills of their craft’.
