A successful art & craft fair!

Last weekend at Kirkcaldy Art Club our Christmas Art and Craft Fair took place.

Up next: our Art & Craft fair

Last weekend, on Saturday 2nd November, Irene Coulthard led a second workshop in 'Mishima and Sgraffito' for people who couldn't get a place at the previous workshop. Once again Irene guided participants through each stage with passion and enthusiasm. This involved tracing designs onto the prepared clay, to incising, then adding the underglaze and cleaning it up afterwards.
