Craft Scotland is the national agency for craft.

We work to unite, inspire and champion craft in Scotland.

A Scottish charity, we create opportunities for Scottish makers to exhibit, sell and promote their work, and for the public to see, purchase and learn about craft. We do this through our varied campaigns, exhibitions, events and website.
