THE STRONG INFLUENCE OF SHETLAND’S LANDSCAPE, HERITAGE AND CULTURE, CAN BE SEEN IN THE CREATIVE OUTPUT OF SHETLAND’S CRAFTMAKERS, DESIGNERS AND ARTISTS; IN CERAMICS, TEXTILES, LEATHERWORK, KNITWEAR, JEWELLERY, PHOTOGRAPHY, PRINTMAKING, SCULPTURE, PAINTING AND MUCH MORE... Welcome to the Shetland Craft Trail and map for 2018, created by the Shetland Arts & Crafts Association. This map of Shetland’s creative landscape can lead you on a journey throughout Shetland, to craft workshops and open studios, from Unst in the north, to Scousburgh and Fair Isle in the south - from the island of Whalsay in the east, to Sandness in the west. Plan your journey well, to discover and to purchase the diverse ranges of work produced by some of Shetland’s many craftmakers, designers, applied artists and visual

artists who are part of a growing creative community. Often inspired by their environment, culture or indigenous materials, they create contemporary works for sale and exhibition in Shetland, and for galleries and customers worldwide. In around 30 craft workshops and working studios you can meet the artists and designers, commission special pieces, or simply shop for unique gifts. On the map are ‘other outlets’; shops and places of interest relating to art and craft.


All craftmakers and designers are full members of Shetland Arts & Crafts Association, an active group of 130 members, established in 1995 to develop and market contemporary Shetland crafts.

HIGHEST STANDARDS OF DESIGN, WORKMANSHIP, PACKAGING AND PRODUCTION

The Visual Arts are also thriving in Shetland, which can be seen in the quality and diversity of work by members of the Veer North visual artists’ group. The group currently has 30 members, some of whom are exhibiting as part of this studio trail. Increasingly, visual artists are contributing to the economy of Shetland with local artists spending more and more time creating and earning a living from their arts practice. This studio trail is part of that economy with artists opening their studios (some for the first time) and encouraging visitors to interact with their work, and maybe, purchase a symbol of their visit.
