Craft Scotland Summer Show: 4th - 27th August 2017
Updated: Jul 10, 2019
As hundreds of visitors flock to our city in awe of the vibrant Edinburgh Festival and the city takes centre stage, Craft Scotland will be adding their own production as they partner with White Stuff to create a masterpiece.
A truly immersive craft experience will see around thirty-tree of the country's most exciting designers and makers showcase their range of jewelry, ceramics, textiles and furniture.
Hosted at White Space on George Street, the Craft Scotland exhibition will provide a calming escape from the hustle and bustle of the Festival; providing stalls and a series of workshops throughout the month of August allowing visitors to get their own 'feel' for Scottish craft.
Attendees will include Vogue favourite jeweller Lynne MacLachlan, award-winning ceramicists Fitch and McAndrew, Belle & Sebastian textile collaborator Laura Spring and Christopher Kane commissioned knitwear designer Flora Collingwood-Norris.
Over 20,000 visitors are expected to Craft Scotland this August and they can expect to see and shop a curated selection of unique homewares, handcrafted textiles, design-led jewellery and more. It is the perfect place to pick up unique gifts, ranging from stunning 3D-printed jewellery, beautifully decorated earthenware, graphic textiles and much more.
