The Scotland: Craft & Design pavilion at London Design Fair in September 2016 championed the energy, innovation and talent in the Scottish craft sector. Scottish makers are creating exceptional pieces of craft by embracing new digital technologies alongside traditional methods. Working in partnership, Craft Scotland and Emergents have created this pavilion to present the very best in contemporary Scottish craft and design.
Twenty-two emerging and established designer/makers from across Scotland were selected by an industry panel to take part in the Scotland: Craft & Design pavilion. Each maker’s exceptional work covers a broad range of techniques and processes, and demonstrates the breadth and quality of the sector.
Visitors can discover a curated collection of ceramics, lighting, jewellery, glass, furniture, textiles, and more. Drawing from its rich heritage, Scotland cultivates a pioneering spirit within its creative industries and encourages each maker to develop a strong unique voice.
