Making Circles Workshop with Ostrero


For the closing of the Crafted Selves exhibition at Kirkcaldy Galleries, Fife Contemporary have partnered with Ostrero for a Making Circles Workshop, taking place Sunday 12 May, 1-3pm.

This workshop will be taking the vinyl banners used to promote the exhibition, and repurposing them to create new objects to take home, such as bags, pencil cases and wallets. The workshop includes an introduction to the Circular Economy, and by working with a professional designer-maker, participants will learn techniques to continue to create objects using circular design principles. Bookings are essential – reserve your place here.

At Fife Contemporary we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, and look to sustainable and environmentally positive practices where possible. We are pleased to be working with Ostrero to save this promotional exhibition material from landfill, and for repurposing it in creative and useful ways!

Ostrero works to grow the Circular Economy in Scotland through mindset change and education. We raise awareness of what the Circular Economy is and how it is vitally important to Scotland’s economic and environmental wellbeing. Ostrero is based in Edinburgh, Scotland. It was created in 2016 by Mary Michel and Marian Brown, who are both passionate about the tangible and positive changes that the Circular Economy can create.

Crafted Selves: The Unfinished Conversation takes its title from a continuing discourse between curator Cat Dunn and the 13 Scotland based artists featured. Working in sculpture, painting, ceramics, textiles, installation, moving image films and creative writing responses, the artists all in some way carry a Dual-Identity. Many have a sense of their own self born from having a cultural heritage which is both Scottish and one which is rooted in another cultural home. The exhibition also explores other dualisms and expressions of identity, including artists who express their sexuality, disability, or trans and non-binary selves through their work.

Crafted Selves: The Unfinished Conversation is presented at Kirkcaldy Galleries from 23 March – 12 May 2024
