The Craft Marketplace is now closed. 

Following sector research and an internal review, Craft Scotland has decided to suspend the Craft Marketplace. The Craft Marketplace will be closed from Thursday 6 August, if you have recently placed an order with one of our makers and have a question please contact hello@craftscotland.org.

What's next?

The Ecommerce landscape has changed significantly since support from Scottish Enterprise enabled us to pilot this project. Increasingly, makers are now selling effectively through their own online channels as detailed in our Online Selling Study.

Supporting makers

We want to help more makers and craft venues develop the skills to sell craft online and will use our learning to create training and resources to assist in this area. We are developing new online selling training through our COMPASS programme, launching in September 2020.

Promoting the craft sector online

We are exploring new ways to promote makers who sell online and improve our website functionality. This include the Craft JournalWhat’s On and Maker Community listing, our Craft Directory and newsletters. It will enable makers to easily promote their activities, news and opportunities to our engaged craft audience.
