IT’S not just performers that are heading to Edinburgh this August – the city has become a hotspot for makers and designers too.

Creators can be found at the Craft Scotland Summer Show, the most major craft event in the Scottish calendar.

Running from 3 – 26 August this unique retail exhibition, supported by major high street retailer White Stuff, sees the company’s flagship store benefit from a contemporary craft takeover.

The show will feature exquisite jewellery, beautiful limited edition items of clothing, sought after ceramics and imaginative homewares in a testament to the growing global demand for Scottish contemporary craft.

Buoyed by wider international recognition from shows in London and the US, and the growing popularity of a new wave of contemporary craft in Scotland, the demand for unique pieces of jewellery, contemporary ceramics, vibrant textiles and home furnishings is at an all-time high with over 5,000 visitors expected.

Speaking ahead of this year’s show Craft Scotland Director Fiona Logue said: ‘We’re thrilled to be able to showcase so many stunning items at this year’s show.

“For visitors it’s the perfect opportunity to take home a genuine and unique made in Scotland quality souvenir.”

The show has now become a must visit experience of Scottish craft as national and international customers alike flock to show.

Craft Scotland will also host a series of workshops throughout the month of August allowing visitors to get their own feel for Scottish craft creation.
