AAS Roadshow: The Craft of Making event at the Lighthouse with SAU

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;

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 (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.
