The Craft Scotland Summer Show is a firm fixture in the calendar. During the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the second floor of White Stuff, in Edinburgh’s city centre, transforms into a haven for craft and design-lovers.

For its seventh year, we asked industry-insiders to join our selection panel: Gillian Scott (Director, Craft Design House) and Mhari McMullan (Director, Welcome Home), alongside Craft Scotland’s Allyson Gee (Project Officer).

Visitors could discover statement handmade objects from 41 Scotland-based makers in one unique location. Over 44% of the makers were new to the show, making it a great opportunity to experience the breadth of making talent in Scotland.

The show presented the latest collections from established and emerging makers, including precious metal and mixed media jewellery, woven cushions and rugs, quilted and printed textiles, hand-thrown ceramics, vibrant glass, forged steel vessels and wooden homeware.

Our makers and friendly team were also on-hand to guide visitors through the process and the materials behind the work.

Plus, visitors to the show get hands-on with our inspirational maker-led workshops for adults and young people.
