Scottish craft is not only alive and well, it’s breaking new boundaries and winning over new audiences.
The Scottish craft community is one of the broadest, most inclusive, and most dynamic creative communities in Scotland.
Grounded in the strong tradition of Scottish craft that continues to produce some of the world’s favourite materials such as tartan, tweed, and pure wool, Scotland is now at the forefront of a contemporary craft revolution.
Scottish makers can be based in urban collectives, rural residencies, show work in galleries and museums, hold open days in their studios, give one on one or group workshops, or sell their work in quality craft and design shops. Museums and galleries in Scotland often hold exhibitions of contemporary craft or display historic or prestigious craft in their permanent collections.
