About Meet Your Maker
Meet your Maker first began in 2010 as one of Craft Scotland’s original campaigns held in the National Museums Scotland.
Meet your Maker 2013 is a national showcase spread across eight Scottish venues to give more people the opportunity to witness this exciting event, as makers work at their craft simultaneously.
Working with eight Scottish venues committed to promoting and supporting Scottish craft, we will again showcase makers and their work to give the public a rare glimpse into their creative processes from the design stage through to production of the final pieces.
The events will give an insight into the skills, commitment and creativity involved in making craft, as well as the range of techniques designers and makers employ in their work.
