The Cupar Coat
A coat of good luck, made from Bog Myrtle, was created by Caroline Dear and worn by the community of Cupar throughout the 2013 Cupar Arts Festival . The coat passed from person to person with instructions sewn into the lining about how to document the experience of wearing the coat. Some of those interactions, stories and experiences of wearing the coat were then posted on a dedicated Facebook page, giving the coat a virtual presence. When not being worn, the coat could be found, along with information, in the window of SCOTT’S, a local clothing store in the town.
