Join Us

Crossing Borders brings artists and craft makers from the Scottish Borders to shout out loud for creative talent in the area.

We represent painters and printmakers, ceramic and glass artists, sculptors, photographers and wood workers, artists working creatively in textiles, jewellery, metal and leather work.

We believe there are huge benefits to membership of Crossing Borders, including:

  • The chance to be part of a creative community which celebrates and supports the achievements of its members
  • Opportunities to exhibit as a group and as individuals, and to take part in schemes like the Mini Residencies program
  • Networking opportunities
  • Promotion of members events & exhibitions via the Crossing Borders website and social media
  • The chance to be included in an annual printed Directory which will promote and highlight creativity across the Scottish Borders throughout the year.

We are now open to applications from new members, so if you know any talented professionals living and working in the Scottish Borders, please recommend them to us. The membership fee is currently set at £40.

Please contact us for details by emailing us.
