Makers, curators and those interested in contemporary craft - this is your opportunity to get inspired, make connections and share knowledge with international experts. The Craft Scotland Conference 2018 is in partnership with National Museums Scotland.

The theme for this year's conference is New Ways of Seeing. Guest curated by Rose Watban, formerly the Senior Curator of Modern and Contemporary Design at National Museums Scotland, her programme will shine a light on makers and their innovative practices.

Over two days, you will hear insightful talks and dynamic panel discussions, which will focus on key themes affecting the craft world today. We are delighted to announce artist/jeweller Felieke van der Leest from Norway as a keynote speaker, who will bring her unique international perspective to Scotland.

Our popular Breakout Sessions are back, along with the opportunity to engage with the National Museum of Scotland exhibitions and brush up on your practical business skills.

The two-day ticket is valid for both days of the conference and includes:

Entrance to all talks

Entrance to a break-out session

Evening social event

On Thursday 7 June, conference delegates can join Craft Scotland as we host the World Craft Council (Europe) General Assembly for an evening social event. This is your opportunity to connect with UK and international delegates. Enjoy supper, and drinks provided by The Glenmorangie Company.
