Historic Scotland was looking for a maker who could unlock the potential of traditional or contemporary craft, enabling learners to discover more about their cultural heritage and providing creative inspiration linked to stories, people and events from the past.

    Our successful maker, Laura Murray, has put together a blog of her experiences.
