Highlights Productions (Contemporary Craft Tour)

Highlights Contemporary Craft Tour aims to provide rural communities with access to high quality craft that is usually only accessible in urban areas. The tour uses a network of venues and volunteer promoters set up by the performing arts rural touring scheme which also tours high quality threatre, music and dance to isolated rural communities that would not otherwise have the opportunity to see work of that standard without travelling substantial distances. The Contemporary Craft Tour usually takes place in May/June and is scheduled to take advantage of two Bank Holiday weekends.

Highlights has successfully run five tours since the Contemporary Craft Tour was launched, 'Out of the Wood' 2004, 'Metal' 2006, 'Taking up the Thread' 2007, 'Knit 2gether' 2008, 'Paper Trail' 2009 and this years' 'Thrift & Thread' which had over 1750 visitors and sold over £1000 of work. The 2011 Craft Tour 'Sward' will showcase the work of three makers around the theme of endangered Meadowlands.
