Craft Scotland Summer Show 2016: Applications open
Location: White Stuff, 89 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 3ES
Phone: 0131 466 3870
Presented across the entire second floor of White Stuff on George Street, Edinburgh during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Craft Scotland Summer Show attracts around 5,000 visitors each year who come to see and buy high-quality, contemporary Scottish craft. We are now inviting submissions from makers who wish to take part in our 2016 Summer Show.
The show has run consecutively for the last three years during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, showcasing the works of approximately 30 makers over the three-week show. Our Summer Show is a great opportunity for makers to sell their work to local, national and international visitors during Edinburgh’s busy festival period.
The Craft Scotland Summer Show 2016 will be held once again at White Stuff in Edinburgh. It will be open to the public from Friday 5 to Sunday 28 August 2016, with an invitation-only private view held on Thursday 4 August.
For our 2016 Summer Show we plan to exhibit the work of around 35 makers across a range of disciplines. We are looking for makers whose work would be suitable for an audience of existing and first-time buyers of craft. As in previous years we are also keen to promote a selection of emerging makers.
To be considered for this opportunity, you should produce affordable, high-quality craft. You must be able to provide between ten and 40 pieces of work (depending on discipline) for the show. From our experience of the Summer Show in previous years, works have typically sold for between £20 and £500, with an average sales value of around £45.
