Made in Stirling Pop-Up Shop
Made in Stirling is a pop-up shop located at 3 King Street, Stirling city centre. The shop is providing an opportunity for local creatives to collaborate and exhibit / retail their work on the high street.
The project has been funded by Stirling Council and sponsored by a range of Stirling businesses including Stirling Electrical Services Ltd, Ogilvie's, Creative Stirling and D Signs, with materials from Norbord.
Members of SCIF have worked tirelessly to make this a showcase of not only artists work but also the members strength in collaboration.
Forum members have the opportunity to display and sell their arts, crafts, photography and design work in the shop and the call for proposals is still live, with some spaces being made available on a rotational basis.
This is SCIF's first LIVE project and it also links in with the wider 'Start Up Street Stirling' city centre initiative, which is aimed at revitalising Stirling by bringing new and creative uses to vacant commercial premises.
