Craft Scotland



The 19th Annual Exposition of Sculpture Objects & Functional Art Fair is a gallery-presented, international art exposition dedicated to bridging the worlds of design, decorative and fine art. Works by emerging and established artists and designers are available for sale by premier galleries and dealers.

Craft Scotland will represent Scotland in November 2012 when they take six of the nations’ most qualified craftspeople to the international exposition, SOFA Chicago. Among the artists is Lizzie Farey, willow artist basketmaker and fibre artist. This video profiles basket maker Lizzie Farey as she works from her studio in Galloway, Scotland.  
Craft Scotland filmed this preview of the artists they will feature at SOFA.
