VISITORS can hear from the artists who call Dunfermline's Fire Station Creative home as the venue's Open Studios event returns for another year.

It is the first time the sessions have been held since before the pandemic and it will provide an opportunity to engage with artists who currently have their work on show in the hub's annual Tenants' Exhibition.

Ian Moir, gallery curator, said: "It’s with great excitement that we bring back a very important event in our calendar.

"We have many new tenants working in our building, so visitors can expect to meet them and learn about their practice.

"This is a great opportunity to support local artists and buy some very original Christmas gifts."

Live music will also be available in the main gallery and an additional display of work by tenants will be viewable in the first-floor classroom.

One of those involved will be ceramicist Sarah Lyth, who joined the facility in March.

She said: "I'm really enjoying being part of this thriving arts community. I look forward to speaking with the visitors and showing them my creative process."

And guests will be able to take in the iconic art deco building, which has been a landmark in the city for 87 years and was put in jeopardy earlier this year when rendering began to loosen from the facade.

Scaffolding has been obscuring the venue since July's heatwave, when the sudden rise in temperature caused a panel of roughcasting to come loose. Repairs are set to be carried out after listed building consent was granted.

The special event will run between 10am and 5pm on Saturday, November 26, and from 11am until 4pm on Sunday, November 27.
