On Wednesday this week this week, we had our first Roadshow event; 'The Craft of Making' event which was held at the Lighthouse, with a talk packed with information by the SAU and a delightful talk by Fi Scott from MakeWorks.
Following on the topics of the AAS talk; here are some links as promised;
1. Applied Arts Scotland is conducting a survey to gauge the need/demand for the development of a Craft apprenticeship; this is in dialogue with CCSkills and other partners. If you are interested in either taking on an apprenctice and want to know more, or be involved in a pilot scheme, or know of someone who is, it would be really useful to complete the survey and do get in touch;
2. Applied Arts Scotland has set up a Scottish petition to show support for the sector in light of the recent DCMS changes; https://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/department-of-culture-media-and-sport-dcms-stop-the-removal-of-craft-as-a-category
Meanwhile, if you would like to know more about our upcoming plans and membership scheme, please send us an email with 'I'm Interested" in the subject line to firstname.lastname@example.org (for spamming reasons there is no direct link to this email so please copy and paste; thanks).
We are of course also on the blogspot Applied Arts Scotland
on Twitter @AppliedArtsScot
and the non-profit organisation Facebook page AppliedArtsScotland
Thanks and keep in touch.
