ANTA was founded in 1984 with a simple vision, to promote and support exceptional Scottish craft and design. This dedication to craft and ethical production extends the next generation too. Our in-house training programme helps to develop artisans of the future by passing down traditional skills and production methods and we'd love to build on this by opening our doors to new, emerging artists.
The ANTA Artist in Residence Programme offers contemporary artists and makers a haven to further explore their specialist area in the arts while being exposed to a working studio within a successful Scottish business. During their stay, visiting artists will contribute to core departments and will be encouraged to offer fresh perspectives to business challenges spanning production, marketing, and design. Working projects are likely to include a mix of; collaborative product design, photography shoot direction, digital content creation, along with exposure to product production and customer service.
