How do you make your stovies? Are you a corned beef kinda gal or sausage? Starting this Friday 14 March, the Broomhead Bothy comes to the Broomhead flats in Dunfermline and, in the community flat on the ground floor, will provide weekly cookery and art workshops as well the opportunity to pop in and share stories. Tales of green shield stamps and long gone picture houses are already being shared on the project’s Facebook page.
The cookery worshops will be hosted by Katie Thompson with each session incorporating a traditional Scottish recipe. After the stovies on the 14th, Friday 21 March is all about Scotch Broth while on 28 March the focus is on good old beef stew. Finally on 4 April participants will have a chance to make fruity oaties. Workshops will run on a drop in basis with ingredients and utensils supplied.
The Broomhead Bothy is an NHS led art initiative and part of the hugely impressive Real Bothy project which has seen a portable structure, inspired by Scotland’s wilderness shelters, travel the country as a meeting place where people can exchange stories and connect with contemporary art. Artists Andrew Lennie, Claire Lamond and Alan Grieve have each used their unique art practices to engage and entertain the public
