Harnessing the power of the arts to deliver sustainable development

Craft Town Scotland is a project of the West Kilbride Community Initiative Limited, a Company Limited by Guarantee SC 192083 and Scottish Registered Charity SC028481.

Craft Town Scotland is a model which has promoted crafts at grass-roots level, embedding makers in the daily life of West Kilbride's community. It has supported, and will continue to support, makers of all disciplines at all levels by promoting the work of skilled 'amateurs' with the same care and respect as the work of our most innovative practitioners. The project has created a focus for craft and design by providing affordable studio accommodation for professional makers which are open to the public and, by exploiting niche retailing and tourism, encouraged new businesses and increased visitors to the town.

West Kilbride has retained its sense of place in the face of decline and dereliction and contributed to a more creative Scotland in the process
