Own Art makes contemporary craft more affordable through interest-free loans. 


All Across Scotland

Own Art makes craft and art more affordable, helping craft consumers purchase work by talented makers. Craft Scotland is thrilled to be a member of Own Art.

The Own Art scheme allows you to spread the cost of your purchase over ten months with an interest-free loan. At selected Craft Scotland Events and Exhibitions, you can select a beautiful piece of craft to start your collection without having to pay the full amount on the day. We are committed to making high-quality craft accessible to a wide audience. 

Look out for the Own Art logo at select Craft Scotland events and exhibitions, and speak to a member of staff about using the scheme for your purchases.  

With Own Art’s support for makers, organisations and consumers, you can buy craft from as little as £10 per month.


To explain more about this scheme, here are some frequently asked questions: 


What can I buy?

Own Art loans are available in our gallery for the purchase of contemporary art and craft by living artists.

How much can I borrow?

Own Art loans allow you to borrow from as little as £100 up to a maximum of £2,500 for the purchase of works of art by living artists.

How do I apply?

After you’ve found something in our gallery that you love at one of our Events or Exhibitions, you can approach a member of our staff to learn more about the application process. This process takes around ten minutes, following which you will get an instant decision. 

Own Art is a scheme funded by Arts Council England, Creative Scotland and other partners
