Craft makers work with their hands, using tools, machinery and technology to (often) make wearable or usable objects such as jewellery, clothes, shoes, furniture, pots, bowls and hats. They use materials such as metal, wood, glass, plastic, fabric, leather and clay. Some makers use traditional techniques and machinery, while others use the latest cutting-edge technology. Some makers use a mixture of both approaches. This work documents Upland arts Modern Heritage Craft mentoring programme, which gave young people under the age of 25 the opportunity to work with some of Scotland’s most talented craft makers.
