30th September - 17th November 2013

Craft Town Scotland has always supported new graduates from the country’s art colleges; experimental environments where students hone creative, intellectual and making skills.

We have selected from the wealth of talent emerging after 4 years of research, development and studio practice.  Supported by Creative Scotland, this year’s Degree Show Focus shares a space with “Bud to Bloom”, an exhibition of work from the Crafts Council UK’s collection.  Showcasing work from a selection of the country’s most influential contemporary makers, who exemplify the innovation and creativity of those who have ‘made the grade’- they light the way for new graduates emerging from formal education as they progress their creative practice.
