Craft Scotland is a Scottish charity, working to unite, inspire and champion Scottish craft.
We are the world’s first audience development agency for craft. This means that we employ the three principles of audience development in our work: marketing & communications, research & intelligence, and engagement & participation.
Craft Scotland is made up of a team of creative thinkers, marketers and champions of Scottish craft. We are placing ourselves at the front of a global craft revolution.
We run exhibitions and events which connect the public with the Scottish craft community, often working with partner organisations such as National Museums Scotland, Timespan, the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh, and the Collins Gallery. We also present collections of Scottish craft to the public in UK and International craft, design and art shows.
Our website provides a platform for craft people and places across Scotland to promote their work and connect to a diverse audience. Thousands of people visit craftscotland.org every month to find out more about craft, see what’s on in their area, and commission craft directly from the makers.
