Meet your maker

January 22, 2010

‘Meet your Maker’ is an up and coming exhibition in the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. It is an exhibition to connect the public with their craftsperson. It’s all about trying to open the eyes to the general public about the importance and passion of craft. This sounds like an awesome exhibition and really calls upon the public to look around them and find out about craft.

There seems to be an uproar amongst the crafts people of Scotland. People are now starting to understand that craft has been neglected and unappreciated. Not because the people do not believe in such creativity but they have little access to it and little knowledge of it.

There are now new projects, initiatives, collaboration, exhibitions trying to build that gap between maker and viewer.

I will be on the look out for some of these projects coming to light and will keeping you informed of my finds.
This exhibition echoes one of the main beliefs I have at Vanilla Ink.  It is opening the eyes to the process of craft and will get them hungry for more. Vanilla Ink will feed this appetite. It will be the place to go to see craft in the making, to be involved in the whole process of making jewellery.

Vanilla Ink wants to encourage the public to connect with craft and know that craft is available to them and can be easily accessed.

    This sounds really interesting, I’d love to see this exhibition and I’m sure most of the other second years would be up for it!

      I’m going to try and organise a trip. Going to speak to Sandra about it. If you could speak to the 2nd years and get their backing we can hopefully all get across :)
