The Artisan Edinburgh book is a travel around Edinburgh’s finest makers, from silversmiths to kiltmakers or ceramicists to weavers, done by Catherine Aitken as a result of a number of visits and interviews to local crafters who use traditional methods blended with cutting-edge techniques, to give a unique insight into their workspaces and the inspirations behind their craft.

Published by The History Press, this lovely book full of inspiration shows stunning photography of the work of 24 artisans in their studios.

Catherine Aitken is an Edinburgh-based accessories maker who works with Scottish materials such as Harris Tweed and waxed cottons from Dundee, to create contemporary designs with style and sustainability in mind.
