Applications are now open for Craft Scotland's flagship maker learning and development programme.
Now in its fourth year, the COMPASS: Emerging Maker Programme focuses on nurturing talent and equipping individual makers with the skills they need to create a successful, sustainable, resilient business and creative practice.
The programme takes a practical approach to nurturing a creative business through the early stages of development. The programme is delivered through a combination of online workshops, an immersive five-day residential, one-to-one sessions, specialist advice, peer learning, work critiques and mentoring. It draws on the experience and skills of established makers and creative industry experts who share their insights and advice.
Each participant will be matched with a mentor at the end of the programme. You will also be provided with resources to enhance your learning experience. Throughout the programme, participants will be supported by the Craft Scotland team who will steer you through the process and answer any questions you might have.
Open to makers across Scotland. Deadline for application is 5pm, Thursday 11 November 2021. Interviews will be conducted by Zoom in late November 2021, and applicants will be notified by Friday 3 December 2021.
