The Jorum Craft Award is a materials-focused grant supported by Jorum Studio, in association with Craft Scotland.
The Jorum Craft Award provides funding to support makers’ exploration of materials, including but not limited to research and development of a new piece of work, project or collection.
Each Craft Award centres around a theme, exploring the intersection between technical skill and material innovation.
The theme for Round 6 (Dec 2022) is Unusual Weather. The influence weather and unusual phenomena can have on design; studying unusual weather phenomena to influence creativity.
Craft Scotland are looking for proposals for new bodies of work that explore Unusual Weather and different approaches to materiality. Each theme can be interpreted by the maker through their materials, concepts, designs whether this is literally or abstractly.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate a clear view of their future development (and/or that of a particular project), and how receiving the Jorum Craft Award would help them to achieve their goals.
Applications close on the 5th of January 2023.
One award is available per round, between £500 and £1,000, to assist with the development of your creative practice.
