Craft Scotland is looking for sixty Scotland-based makers to contribute to the CraftHub Material and Practitioners Library.  *EXTENDED D/LINE: 10 OCT 2022*

CraftHub is a collaborative three-year project involving nine UK & EU partners including Craft Scotland, co-funded by Creative Europe.

 *EXTENDED D/LINE: 10 OCT 2022*

CraftHub aims to illustrate craft’s importance in our shared European cultural heritage, and its continuing relevance in contemporary practice. The three-year programme includes maker residencies, exhibitions, conferences, events and a new digital platform. 

The CraftHub website is dedicated to preserving craft knowledge, materials and processes for the good of the craft community and to inspire future generations. We are looking to showcase the breadth of Scotland’s disciplines and materials through the entries.  

The CraftHub Material Library is a collection of materials and techniques for all to explore. Makers will document a specific process through images, video and text, preserving craft knowledge across Europe for generations. Each participant will contribute six entries to the library.  

Contributors will also create a profile on the CraftHub Practitioners Library, allowing you to showcase your work alongside European makers and be part of wider European network. The Library also allows makers to share their practice with curators, producers and the European craft community with a short interview.    

This is a paid opportunity; each Contributor will be paid £150 (inc. VAT) for their contribution to the CraftHub website (six entries to the Material Library and one profile on the Practitioners Library). This rate is in line with the Scottish Artist Union Rates of Pay 2022.  

Once selected, Contributors will be supported by the Craft Scotland team to create their CraftHub entries and provided with guides. This may include supporting you to think through what processes you would like to document and how to use your own existing audio and visual equipment (laptops, mobile phones, cameras etc.) to capture the process.
