29–31 May 2015
Launch Friday 29 May, 5–9pm
The Fruitmarket Gallery’s design fair is back and bigger this year! We have invited makers from different disciplines to fill the galleries for three days in May. We have also joined forces with Creative Edinburgh who bring their fantastic connections to the city’s creative tribes.
DesignMarket is arranged for easy viewing in areas of print, jewellery, fashion and homeware, with a carefully curated line-up of more than 35 designers presenting their beautiful and extremely buyable work.
Edinburgh Contemporary Crafts are offering practical workshops demonstrating techniques in weaving, print-making and jewellery design and Creative Edinburgh are programming talks to add energy, bring ideas and inspire new thinking on DesignMarket afternoons.
Come and see the selection before everyone else at the opening on Friday 29 May, when we will also be celebrating the launch of the Edinburgh Craft and Design Map – the handy tool for tracking down excellent design in the capital after DesignMarket comes to a close.
