Anster Nicht: Two Crail Men and KY10

Date: 20th February 2020

Time: 19:30

Location: Dreel Halls

Anster Nichts

Well-kent local beardy and hat-wearing dads Kenny “King Creosote” Anderson and Keny “East Neuk Stained Glass” Drew talk about how the alchemy of their creative humors flowed into the veins of comic character KY10 and how their current individual musical and artistic output is shaped by life on the banks of the River Forth.

Anster Nicht: An Exploration of the Gansey

Date: 19th March 2020

Time: 19:30

Location: Dreel Halls

Anster Nichts

As a lifelong knitter with a special interest in Gansey knitting, Di Gilpin and her working partner, Sheila Greenwell, will be taking a journey through the history and special knitting details of these fascinating garments. There is a huge story to tell and a lot of history to discover: tensions, stitch counts, patterns, construction details, yarns, colours and motifs. They will share these special details and qualities with us on the evening and show how they use them in their fashion work internationally. Di is Creative Director of Di Gilpin Ltd, specialising in hand knitting, pattern writing and design. Sheila Greenwell is Production Manager at the company with a life time’s experience in hand knitting.

Building a thriving and resilient community, improving Anstruther for all
