Research and development focused micro-grant by Jorum Studios, in association with Craft Scotland.
Launched in 2020, the Jorum Craft Award provides funding to assist with development of a maker’s creative practice, including but not limited to research and development of a new piece of work, project or collection. The Jorum Craft Award is supported by Jorum Studio, in association with Craft Scotland.
We are delighted to announce the makers selected for the first Jorum Craft Award, Florence Dwyer (£500) and Stephen Kavanagh (£250). Learn more about their practice.
Established in 2010, Jorum Studio is a Scottish perfumer. They create scents conceived of the head, nurtured with heart, crafted by hand. Learn more about the studio, their affinity with handmade objects and why they started this award on our Craft Journal interview with founders Chloe & Euan.
We were overwhelmed and captivated by the quality of the applicants for the first ever Jorum Craft Award, and it was even more exciting to see such a diverse range of mediums, some of which we had not heard of before. Thank you to Craft Scotland for partnering with us, it was a joy to be a part of the selection process, although it was tough to narrow down the applications!Chloe Mullen, Jorum Studio
