In the third of our collaborations with Craft Scotland we will celebrate contemporary woodworking through a presentation of multidisciplinary works from gifted Scottish makers. Challenging the common perceptions of wood, this year our showcase highlights the versatility of wood as a craft material, and the diversity of applications it can be adapted to.

VAS explores the regions where artforms crossover, especially those between the fine and applied arts, and at ALIGHT we will present a body of jewellery that reflects this goal, as well as demonstrating outstanding design and craftsmanship.
Our invited jeweller for 2019 is pioneer of ethical jewellery practice, Ute Decker.
