Labour-intensive flax-spinning and linen manufacture was extensive in Cupar and the surrounding area through the 18th and 19th centuries with the majority of weavers working from home. This exhibition, with took its title from the Latin word meaning “linen thread, string, or cord” drew attention to an aspect of Cupar’s rich local history through an evocative series of installations in the former Fishers laundry building on Kirk Wynd. Fiona McGarva uses a variety of glass techniques (blowing, flameworking, kiln forming, gilding, cold working) to create mixed-media glass sculpture, lighting and tableaux based on microscopic worlds and hybrid creatures.
