We were smitten with Hugo Macdonald and James Stevens at first introduction, on sharing what was a very heartfelt and transparent conversation about our respective wishes for Scottish design and craft and for the wharf-facing address at Custom Lane.
Bard has clearly dwelled in their hearts for a good, long time and it’s with integrity, curiosity and a genuine and compelling spirit of celebration that the project has been brought to its full, physical form.
Bard is a shop and gallery space for Scottish craft and design. To quote Hugo: “It’s a commercial venture but it’s also a cultural venture that aims to ask questions about Scottish cultural identity, past and future, through made objects, makers and manufacturers.”
We are delighted to host a small Bard showcase at HRBR.
To learn more about Bard, we encourage you to read Alyn Griffiths full interview with James and Hugo HERE.
HRBR is a port for the country’s leading and emerging retailers and makers to showcase their work. We look forward to welcoming you.
Visit Bard: Monday to Friday, by appointment. Friday to Sunday, open 12 to 6pm
