Calling Highland Craft Makers -
Craft makers are wanted to participate in an exhibition, particularly in
jewellery, basket making, casting (metal, glass) and stone.
Craft Residencies in the Highlands
There will be a small showcase exhibition at each of the main schools or a
venue nearby for the duration of the programme raising awareness of the
residency and crafts within the school community. One piece of work
from the maker in residence and two other makers will be selected for the
showcase exhibition. Having three makers who work in different ways
within the same craft discipline will allow for a greater understanding of
the techniques and materials involved and the working practice of each
A handling collection will be created by each of the three selected makers
to allow pupils and teachers the opportunity to understand how the work is
made. Having three different methods of working explained within the same
craft discipline will allow comparisons to be made and the potential of
that craft to be fully explored. The handling collection will
consist of part-made objects, raw materials and explanatory materials -
for example, copies of design ideas, sketchbooks, and photographs.

An exhibition fee of £200 will be payable to each artist whose work is
shown. Ownership of the work remains with the artist. The work
