Members of the Young Curators Club at Dornoch museum Historylinks are busy making items to sell at a Christmas fair they are holding in the town’s social club next Saturday, December 18.

The club has been working on an Our Environment Our Heritage project and are focusing on home grown, natural or upcycled products with a wartime ethos of make do and mend and using what comes to hand.

They have made delicious crumbles, green tomato chutney and apple and bramble mincemeat using produce from the museum’s Dig for Dornoch vegetable garden and from a local orchard.

Volunteer Sally Wild demonstrated how to make reindeer tree decorations using strips from the long leaves of the New Zealand flax plant. Twig and wool tree decorations have also been made as well as gift bags with matching tags.

The sale runs from 11am-1pm
