About Craft Scotland Summer Show

The Craft Scotland Summer Show is a firm fixture on the craft calendar. Our annual selling exhibition showcases contemporary, design-led craft throughout August, all housed on the second floor of White Stuff, George Street, Edinburgh.

A haven for design-lovers, our concept lifestyle store gives you a shopping experience like no other. A welcome break from the bustle of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, you can shop a carefully curated selection of distinctive homewares, handcrafted textiles, design-led jewellery and considered furniture. Pick up unique gifts: stunning 3D-printed jewellery, slip decorated earthenware, minimal concrete vessels and graphic textiles, all designed and made in Scotland.

You can visit the show between Friday 4 and Sunday 27 August 2017 (opening times vary, see below for details). Our makers and friendly team will be on-hand to offer you guidance and talk you through the process and materials behind the work.

WORKSHOPS
This summer, make time to create in one of our maker-led workshops. Create bag charms and appliqué earrings with fashion designer Emily Millichip; craft a bespoke silver ring all of your own with CARVE, or get back to nature and learn to carve a wooden spoon with Object Company.

Our workshops have limited spaces, and you can book your place via the Edinburgh Festival Fringe website, or find out more below.

POP-UP COFFEE BAR
Another first for the Summer Show 2017: within the show space we will be hosting a coffee pop-up with Williams and Johnson Coffee Co. The micro-roastery will set up a pop-up coffee bar within the show, so you can enjoy a freshly-brewed pick-me-up whilst you browse the contemporary Scottish craft.

SUPPORTED BY
For the past five years, White Stuff has hosted the Craft Scotland Summer Show in their flagship store in Edinburgh. Craft Scotland is delighted to collaborate with White Stuff on the Summer Show. We believe that craft is an essential part of our cultural, economic and social life and we regularly work with other like-minded agencies to achieve this goal. Both Craft Scotland and White Stuff are committed to promoting quality design. This event is also supported by Creative Scotland and The List.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Craft Scotland Summer Show are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
