Summer Showcase

Deadline: Wednesday 22 January 2020, 5pm

Be part of Craft Scotland’s annual selling exhibition during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, held from Friday 7 to Sunday 30 August 2020 in Edinburgh.

The Summer Show showcases the work of over 30 designer/makers from across Scotland. Running for three weeks in Edinburgh, it gives locals and visitors to the capital the opportunity to explore high-quality, original, contemporary craft. 

Over 4,000 visitors from home and abroad come to view and buy craft, with trade buyers coming to source products and research for retail buying.  

Applications are invited from makers living and working in Scotland, across all craft disciplines and this opportunity is suitable for both established and emerging makers who produce affordable, high-quality craft.

Craft Scotland welcomes applications from talented new makers at all stages of their career and can offer extra support on how to make the most of the show. Over 40% of the participants who took part in the previous year's show had never taken part before.
