Highlands & Islands

Traditional crafts are mapped out

An online map showing the locations of working traditional craftspeople is being put together by the Heritage Crafts Association (HCA).

It already shows a handful of entries from Scotland.

Inverness-based arts body HI-Arts has highlighted the project on its website. It said the map will include crafts that were dying out.

Details on weavers and people who work with glass are among those uploaded so far on to the map on the HCA website.

The Scottish entries include weavers and hand spinners working in Argyll and the Scottish Borders.
