Made in Scotland, an exhibition featuring some 30 of the finest contemporary makers from Scotland, takes place in London from 17 April to 2 June 2012 at the Fleming Collection.
The exhibition is supported by Craft Scotland, whose Chief Executive Emma Walker attended the Gala Opening of the exhibition on 16 April 2012.
Emma Walker said: "The Gala opening of Made in Scotland marks the beginning of a new partnership between Craft Scotland and The Fleming Collection. We are delighted to be involved in such a prestigious showcase of Scottish craft. Over the coming months we will be offering opportunities for makers living in Scotland and Scottish makers currently working in London to promote their work to a London audience."
Meet Your Maker is a unique campaign from Craft Scotland which aims to directly connect craft makers to the public.
Craft Scotland now invite makers based in Scotland, or Scottish makers based in London, to apply to participate in a Meet Your Maker event in the Fleming Collection.
This is an opportunity to discuss your work and process with the public in a prestigious London Gallery (perhaps accompanied by demonstrations, sketchbooks or works in progress) during Summer 2012.
If you would like to hold a Meet Your Maker event at The Fleming Collection, please send your details and a brief description of what you would like to present to email@example.com.

About Meet Your Maker
Meet Your Maker gives the public the chance to find out more about craft and makers by giving the public the opportunity to learn about craft and making directly from craft makers. The first phase of Meet Your Maker was an exhibition of nine contemporary craft makers at the National Museum of Scotland from 29 January to 14 March 2010. From 21 May to 28 June 2010, we then took Meet Your Maker to Timespan in Helmsdale, where we showed five contemporary craft makers working across disciplines. These exhibitions showcased sketchbooks, work in progress, completed works, and incorporated workshops and demonstrations as well as having makers working in the galleries.
