• Scotland: Craft & Design Pavilion at London Design Fair 2016

    The Scotland: Craft & Design pavilion, presented by Craft Scotland & Emergents, launched at London Design Fair on Thursday 22 September 2016. Our pavilion showcased the best of contemporary Scottish craft and design including ceramics, lighting, jewellery, glass, furniture, textiles, and more.

    The Scotland: Craft & Design pavilion was an initiative between Craft Scotland, the national agency for craft, and Emergents, a community interest company supporting the development of creative careers, enterprise and the economy in the Highlands and Islands. This was the first time Scotland has had a country pavilion at the prestigious London Design Fair.

    22 makers from around Scotland were selected by an industry panel to be part of the showcase. It was amazing to see visitors to the pavilion engaging with Scottish craft makers and learning more about the inspiration and provenance behind their work. On display, amongst others, were the geometric patterns of Catherine MacGruer’s soft merino textiles and Lizzie Farey’s organic sculptural forms in willow. Striking hand-built vessels by ceramicist Lara Scobie sat alongside contemporary vernacular furniture by Kevin Gauld, the Orkney Furniture Maker, and utilitarian wooden lighting from Yellow Broom.
