Call For Entry: Emerging Talents at Handmade Edinburgh 2018


Handmade in Britain is collaborating with The Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh for the third edition of Handmade Edinburgh.

The show will be on from the Friday 10 – Sunday 12 of August 2018, during Edinburgh Festival Fringe (private view evening reception on Thursday 9 August). Handmade Edinburgh is becoming the leading showcase for contemporary craft in Scotland. The event is highly consumer oriented and enables visitors to view, buy or commission their perfect piece and take it home with them. Footfall was high with 2,317 visitors attending over the three days of the show and the private view reception.

Following ARTS THREAD’s success for 4 years with Handmade in Britain promoting ARTS THREAD Emerging Talents at show at Chelsea and Kew, for the 2nd year ARTS THREAD is working with HANDMADE EDINBURGH to create a curated space within the show for recent graduates (2015/16/17) to be called EMERGING TALENTS.
