Meet Your Maker in Stirling

Closing date: 5 Dec 2019

Craft Scotland and Historic Environment Scotland (HES) are looking for two makers to deliver a project for students and adult learners.

Closing date: 5pm, Thursday 5th December

Craft Scotland and Historic Environment Scotland (HES) are looking for two makers to deliver a project for students and adult learners inspired by Dunblane Cathedral, The Engine Shed and Scotland’s next themed year, Year of Coasts and Waters 2020. In addition to running workshops the makers will each run a Career-long Professional Learning (CLPL) session for local Art and Design high school teachers.

Makers will support participants to use their creativity and take inspiration from the designs and architecture of Scotland’s traditional buildings, the materials and skills that created them and the stories these iconic buildings tell. Unlock the potential of contemporary craft to inspire participants to learn new skills, support the co-design of new work and integrate digital technology. We are looking for dynamic makers to deliver this project.

The two successful makers will work collaboratively with the following groups:

  • HND 1 Art & Design students, Forth Valley College
  • Adult learners from Artlink Central
  • Local Art & Design secondary school teachers

The project will run from mid-January to the end of April 2020. It is anticipated makers will be required to work directly with participants as follows:

  • Every Tuesday (mid-January to the end of March) – HND 1 Art and Design students at Forth Valley College
  • Two Fridays each (during March or April) – Adult learners from Artlink Central at The Engine Shed and/or Stirling Community Hospital
  • One day each (during March) – Local Art & Design secondary school teachers at The Engine Shed

In addition, there is an opportunity to showcase project outputs at Stirling Castle in a display which will run from May to the end of August 2020. A total of 22 days is available for development and delivery of the project. The breakdown of allocation is as follows:

  • ½ day intro to the project
  • 11 days with Forth Valley College students
  • ½ day dementia training prior to working with Artlink Central participants
  • 2 days with Artlink Central (each) per maker
  • 1-day CLPL for local art and design teachers per maker
  • 5 days research and making of own artwork for the exhibition
  • 2 days hanging the exhibition at Stirling Castle

A HES Learning Officer will provide overall project management and act as the key contact between all parties involved in the project. This will include operational elements of delivery including site visits, purchasing materials and activity support. Space will be provided when working at The Engine Shed/Stirling Community Hospital and studio space is also available at Forth Valley College.
