News, blog posts, press releases and updates from the Craft Scotland team.
In late 2014 Craft Scotland put out a call for makers to take part in a community engagement project with Historic Scotland, working directly with a youth or community group in Stirling Castle over a period of six weeks. Historic Scotland was looking for a maker who could unlock the potential of traditional or contemporary craft, enabling learners to discover more about their cultural heritage and providing creative inspiration linked to stories, people and events from the past.
Our successful maker, Laura Murray, has put together a blog of her experiences.
Coinciding with the annual North East Open Studios (NEOS) event, Touched by Scotland will host a Meet Your Maker event on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 September. The event will offer visitors a rare, behind the scenes look at the work of two makers: Susan Connon, a bookbinder, and Carol Meldrum, a textile artist.
This week we take a look at the stop motion animation Coraline, a stop-motion 3D fantasy children's film based on Neil Gaiman's novel of the same name.
This week’s film features a unique look at Glasgow School of Art Master’s student Katherine Brown’s collection of work.
This Friday our featured film is another from the BBC website, and features men and women who chat, eat cake, and knit in Glasgow's public spaces.
