We are delighted to announce that Sam Booth will be our Maker for Modern Makers 2016. With over 30 years experience in interior, product and building design Sam has realised his ambition to develop beautiful, sustainable, small buildings through establishing Echo Living. 

Modern Makers has evolved from The Modern Heritage Craft Project which ran in 2014 and 2015 giving eighteen 15-25 year olds, all at different stages in their careers, the chance to work with Dumfries and Galloway’s most talented makers.

This project gives young people the chance to work with Sam and his team in his workshop over 20 days, focusing on craft skills, design process and collaborative working.
