I’m delighted to announce that I will be taking part in the Craft Scotland Summer Show, a brand new selling exhibition taking place in Edinburgh throughout August. The show is timed to coincide with the Edinburgh Festival and it promises to be a proper feast of contemporary Scottish craft.
36 makers have been selected from across Scotland — you can see the whole list here — and the range of crafts includes textiles, ceramics, glass, jewellery, basketry and furniture. It’s rather exciting that, of the 36, there are three of us from Meadow Mill. Nicola Morrison and Joanne MacFadyen are both jewellers, and yours truly will — of course — be going in to bat for the handweavers.
The show will be open to the public every day from 2 to 26 August 2013. Opening hours are 11 am – 6 pm Monday to Saturday and 12 – 5 pm on Sundays. It will occupy the entire second floor of White Stuff on George Street, Edinburgh. As well as the craft itself, there are talks and events planned. I will update this post with information as it becomes available.
The event is listed here on the Craft Scotland website, so feel free to share the link with anyone who might be interested!
