A Scottish Craft Fair?

Is it time for a top quality contemporary craft fair in Scotland? And is there a big enough market outside London to support such an event?
With this year’s successful launch of the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair in Manchester the evidence would suggest that a thriving market for craft does exist outside of the capital. Many other cities support annual fairs which adds fuel to the argument that London is not the only place that can sustain such an event. A show which could attract UK wide exhibitors over the border could surely only be a good thing for Scotland and its artistic community. I am sure the wealth of Scottish talent who travel annually to exhibit at shows such as Origin in London would appreciate the short journey too!
