Wow, what a response to the first 10 days of my crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. We have smashed through 50% of the overall target and are now sitting at £1928. Many more artists have gotten in touch and donated their amazing works to the cause, which is a good thing as some things sold out within the first 3 days. The campaign is fast becoming an excellent showcase of the finest Scottish Craft with award winning makers such as Lara Scobie, Kathryn Hinton, Fiona Thompson and James Donald donating items. You can browse a Facebook album of the rewards here.
The generosity of both artists and contributors so far has been incredible and I am very proud to be a part of such a supportive creative community. With just over 31 days to go of the campaign it seems likely that I may exceed my target of £3500 for half the tuition fees for the first year. We are not there yet though so let’s keep up the good work and keep sharing the link. Already some rewards are going to America and Japan and I am happy to post items both nationally and internationally so don’t be afraid to share with all of your networks. If this week is a repeat performance in terms of contributions made and rewards claimed by the end of 14th August we could be firing through the target and thinking about what the next one might be. The £6,500 overall tuition fees for the first year perhaps?
I’ll leave you to ponder that one.
Thank you all so much again.
