Skate and Rejuvenate Workshop
A Class in Fresh Skateboard Art
Blair McCafferty of the Creature Emporium, has a degree in graphic design and a passion for all things skateboarding. Previously sponsored by Deathbox, Converse, Jart Skateboards and Dephect skate brands, Blair has campaigned for skateparks and facilities since he was a young lad and recently had a hand in the design, fund raising and build of Newport-on-Tay’s skatepark. Working freelance, he describes himself as a full time 'doodle monkey' who likes to create cute graffiti and fun street art.
In this all day workshop, Blair will be teaching you how to recycle your old and broken skateboards into wonderful works of art. Using your own ideas, you will use spray-paint and paint pens to create a fun piece of art that’s out of this world! Broken boards and materials will be provided. Bring a packed lunch!

Philippa Johnston is a Fife-based metalsmith and textile artist who works with recycled tin, wire and other materials to create two and three dimensional decorative and functional pieces inspired by folk art. She opens up her Newburgh studio every year as part of Open Studios North Fife.
Discover how you can transform an old biscuit or sweet tin into a quirky folk-art bird or heart to hang in your home using just a few simple tools and techniques. In this all-day workshop, you will learn how to prepare and cut the tin; how to embellish it with feathers, buttons and beads and hand-stitching; and how to use a pop riveter to connect pieces together. There will be plenty of examples to help get you started as well as templates and reference books and of course you can bring along your own sources of inspiration or drawings. All tools and materials will be supplied but do bring along any particular tins or materials you’d like to incorporate. No experience of working with tin required – just come along and have fun trying something new.
