On Saturday March 29, SSW hosted a gathering of craftspeople and artists in celebration of the project and launch of its website ‘Skillscape’.
As SSW is primarily a workshop and studio space, we are constantly looking for ways to engage with other practices that share our interests in material, from tools, to skills and processes, to final objects. It became clear to us that the Northeast of Scotland, extending from the Cairngorms to Peterhead, and from Aberdeen to the Cabrach, had a large number of small workshops with highly skilled craftspeople.
Over the last years we have been gathering people, photographs and interviews, and have now launched a website, including a map that makes visible the breadth of regional craft practices. The website is now publicly available on www.sswskillscape.org.uk and we welcome you to be part of this conversation.
