Architecture on the Carpet

Join Markinch Heritage Group on Thursday 7th December as Dakers Fleming takes us on a wonderful journey back to childhood and the toys we once played with before the invention of the computer!

Architecture on the Carpet

About Architecture on the Carpet

Dakers Fleming, takes us on a journey with toys from the construction world where nimble, and not so nimble, fingers learned how to use imagination to produce models. Many of these toys were the first steps in a desire to work with our hands and become tradesmen. A evening of nostalgia for the toys that are now almost forgotten.

As always tea, coffee and themed home baking will be available and our famed raffle will also be in evidence - with prizes ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous.

The poster is an evocative one which will carry you back to a time which has gone.
