The exhibition comprises work by 22 contemporary, professional makers from Canada and Scotland and covers a broad spectrum of media including: ceramic, glass, jewellery, metalwork, textile and wood.
Craft traditions connect Canada and Scotland and share a sense of northern identity. This exhibition highlights some of these craft traditions and heritage, helping to define our own identities and cultures.
It strips back ideas of craft to four themes that bridge past and present, Old and New Scotland, traditional and changing ideas. These in turn focus on discipline, theory, concepts and methods. It is a novel and timely approach to the production and use of craft from a historical and contemporary perspective.
