What’s On FAQs & Criteria

What is the Craft Scotland What’s On listings?  

What’s On is a hand-picked list of craft events, exhibitions, classes and courses taking place in Scotland. The individual listings direct our website visitors to places they can see and buy high-quality craft, meet makers, learn about, participate in and engage with craft. We also publicise classes run by professional makers with the aim of developing participants’ understanding of craft and supporting makers to make additional income. 


What are the criteria for listing an event or class?  

Craft Scotland list events or classes which showcase, demonstrate or teach contemporary craft. Events should be run by, exhibit the work of, or have a strong connection to at least one professional maker who is producing work that meets our funding remit. Events may also be endorsed or run by a professional organisation that supports makers. Classes and courses should create opportunities for participants to meaningful engage with craft and/or enhance the craft skills of those participating, as well as other benefits like health and wellbeing.
