Precious Cargo

2009 is Scotland's Year of Homecoming and the calendar's theme of migration, boats and the sea reflects this. The exhibition has been designed by Brodie Nairn and Nicky Burns from Glasstorm in Tain as an innovative installation of closed Cargo boxes, one of which opens every day over the festive period to reveal a new object or contemporary 'souvenir' of the Highlands which travellers to lands across the sea might have cherished to remind them of 'home'.

The best of craft makers from across the Highlands and Scotland were invited to respond to the theme and create the 'souvenirs' or 'Precious Cargo' to go inside the crates. The work of 30 artists was selected from jewellery, textiles, wood and ceramics to film and represents a stunning collection of contemporary craftsmanship. A selection of unique crafts is also available to buy.
