I would like to learn a new craft, can you recommend a workshop?

Our What’s On guide is brimming with lots of events and exhibitions where you can explore and shop craft, and we share craft workshop listings in Scotland. If you do not see a workshop that relates to your chosen craft, sign up to our newsletter for future What’s On events. 

I would like to meet Craft Scotland to discuss how to start my new craft business.

Feel free to contact us, if you are seeking more information about starting your craft, curatorial and business practice. We would be happy to have a chat, offer advice and signpost towards additional resources and support.    


Please visit our Maker Community area, it hosts a wide range of information to help you grow your business including maker opportunities, how-to guides and lists of useful organisations/trade shows. 


You may also be interested in our COMPASS programme which includes cohort programmes for makers and curators. Plus, we launched COMPASS: Online in May 2024, a free-to-access online learning and development platform for makers and craft professionals. 

I would like to apply for funding from Craft Scotland, who do I contact?

Craft Scotland is not a funding body; however, we work with a number of partners to offer grants, awards and bursaries throughout the year for makers and curators. You can find details of these awards and other craft sector awards on our Opportunities page, or sign-up to our newsletter to be the first to hear.   

I saw a maker/artist at an event and want to contact them, can you help?

With over 3,500 makers in Scotland, it is not always possible for Craft Scotland to hold up-to-date information on each and every maker. We recommend using our website search to input details of the work you are looking for, and see if any results on our site help.  


All contact details we have for makers on our Craft Directory are found on their profile page. Makers and Destinations maintain their own profile pages, and are responsible for incorrect or out of date details. We cannot provide any details other than those given on the Craft Directory.  

I would like to be featured on your website, how do I do this?

We are always on the lookout for the latest in Scottish contemporary craft news. If you have any stories you would like to share, please send your news to hello@craftscotland.org
