Steeped in knowledge of traditional crafts, Stirling Street Art Centre members celebrate the handmade and rituals of the every day in all their making. Driven by form and texture each group draws from decades of collective knowledge shared each time they meet. Their expertise includes the fields of practical/decorative pottery, mosaics, wall hangings (painting/drawing/textile), body adornment (jewellery, bags, and clothing), 3D textiles, woven/knitted/spun threads and wool, and much more. “Home in the Making” will showcase this knowledge with an exhibition of works from over 200 members as well as demonstrations and workshops delivered during the opening weeks.
Gallery Hours: Monday – Friday: 8.30am – 4pm & Saturday – Sunday: 10am – 4pm
During the course of the SSAC members exhibition, some of our fantastic groups will be hosting open days, demonstrations, and workshops so if you would like to see some of the magic behind their work, drop in for a cuppa on one of these days or book workshops online
