The Green Crafts Initiative 2018 Annual Report

The Green Crafts Initiative is our community of makers committed to reducing their environmental impact. Take a look at our 2018 Members Report for insights and ideas into how the craft sector is taking on the environmental sustainability challenge!

Initially launched at the 2014 Craft Scotland conference, the Green Crafts Initiative is co-run by Craft Scotland and Creative Carbon Scotland as a sister community to the Green Arts Initiative. Any maker in Scotland can apply to be part of the initiative, and receive support on talking about their green work, and connecting with others in the sector.

Our Members and Their Green WorkThe Green Crafts Initiative 4

In Spring 2018 we undertook a survey of our members to find out more about who they are and how they are trying to reduce their environmental impact.

Members were asked to tell us more about their practice (Craft in Scotland is extremely diverse), and what they would like to do to become more sustainable. There were some extremely creative ideas (particularly around the conservation of water in making processes) and which could be universally adopted by the sector to boost the #GreenCrafts movement!

 Take a look at the 2018 Members Report to get an insight into the community!

Looking for more detail on individual makers? Craft Scotland has featured some of the members through their ‘Make It Green’ series on their website. You can find them here or take a look at the Green Crafts Initiative page. You can also spot green makers through looking out for the Green Crafts badge in Craft Scotland’s online Craft Directory.
