This month we have an additional Special Edition of our usual opportunities round up. With a huge number of opportunities to share with you this March we wanted to make sure you didn't miss a thing.
Applications are open for SOFA Chicago 2015, our 2015 Summer Show, and for hosts for our Meet Your Maker 2015/16 programme. We invite you to apply to take part in Historic Scotland's Summer School, and to showcase and sell your work in our Craft Tourism Corporate Gift Guide. We are looking for makers to join our Advisory Group, an experienced PA/Office Coordinator to become part of our small team, and we will be running Craft Tourism Training in Edinburgh and Fife.
We also have details of opportunities to commission a short, social media-friendly film of your work, sell your work at the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair, apply for a residency in Canberra, Australia and sign up for the Heritage Crafts Association's annual conference.
We will be back with another short round up and reminders of our opportunities in mid-March, but until then, we hope there is something in here for everyone!
This round up was first sent to subscribers of our Craft Opportunities newsletter. If you would like to receive these updates directly to your inbox, simply login to Craft Scotland and update your details or register an account with us.
