Scottish Craft Bursary Opportunities

A fantastic bursary opportunity for craft practitioners supported by the Scottish Arts Council and Duncan of Jordanstone College, University of Dundee!

Following on a highly successful pilot study, up to three Craft funded placements at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design (DJCAD), each of 3 months duration, are being offered to creative practitioners to take place during the period 1st August – 11th December 2009. These are being offered through the Scottish Arts Council’s (SAC) Crafts Creative Development Awards which support individuals to create new work through awards of up to £10,000. The work created through the bursary scheme will be part of an exhibition at the 2010 Craft Festival. Successful awardees during the pilot study were Gillian Cooper (Textile Artist) and Sarah Kettley (Interactive Jeweller).

This is a rare opportunity for crafts practitioners to update their creative practice through having access to equipment, facilities and College research staff as appropriate. Applicants wishing to apply for one of the placements should do so by 20th April 2009, having previously discussed their proposal with relevant College staff.
