We are delighted to announce the 38 talented makers that have been selected for the Craft Scotland Summer Show 2018. This year, we asked industry-insiders Rosamund West (Editor-in-chief of The Skinny) and Lewis Smith (Sales & Retail Manager at Dundee Contemporary Arts) to select makers from the open call, alongside Craft Scotland’s Allyson Gee.
During the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the second floor of White Stuff, in Edinburgh’s city centre, will be transformed into a haven for design-lovers. This is your chance to discover contemporary design-led craft from 38 Scotland-based makers in one unique location.
You can shop curated handmade objects, including beautiful homewares, exquisite jewellery, stylish accessories and handcrafted gifts. Plus, participate in hands-on with our inspirational maker-led workshops.
Stay tuned more details to follow. Follow #edsummershow for live updates.
