Designer / Maker Opportunity

Thursday, 23 August 2018

Our current in-house weaver is nearing the completion of her graduate placement and will then head abroad for the next stage of her career. So, from autumn 2018, there is a great opportunity for a self-employed textile designer / maker to join us at Golspie Gallery.

Space is available for someone with drive and enthusiasm to take what has already been developed as far as their ability and imagination enables them. Work space in a proactive gallery (on the NC500), with an established retail, exhibition and teaching environment, supported by various marketing activities, other makers, and an expanding customer base, are all available.

Another weaver would additionally benefit from access to on-site hand-looms, materials and making the gallery's own product range on a commission basis.

We have created an initial interest in, and market for, in-house designed and made textile items. Do you have what it takes to hit the ground running and grow your own business from this?

Please contact us if this appeals to you.

Interest from non-textile designer / makers looking for short or long term studio space in the Scottish Highlands is also welcome.
