The Craftsmen of St Andrews Past & Present

Tuesday 10 May 2016

On Saturday 7 May we were delighted to take part in the ‘Craftsmen of St Andrews Past and Present’ event, organised by Dr Claire Hawes.

We had the craft guild books of the Baxters, Fleshers and Hammermen on display, and a palaeography and calligraphy activity.

The event also featured displays of the traditional skills of the trades alongside laser cutting and 3D printing.

You can read more about the event on our blog and on the website of the Fife Courier.
