Open Thu - Mon
A special collaboration between V&A Dundee and Local Heroes supporting Scottish designers
Six Scottish designers have been commissioned to create contemporary, limited-edition souvenirs in celebration of the ‘year of the daytripper’. On offer are beautifully designed wildflower seed boxes and beach towels.
Perfect for a trip to the beach, a picnic in the park or to help to make your windowsill or garden into a paradise for local pollinators, these collectible souvenirs celebrate summer and an amazing day out in Dundee. 🏖
Keep an eye out for the custom built Daytrippers cargo bikes on our plaza, which have been transformed into eye-catching displays for this special collaboration 👀
The emerging designers behind the limited edition products are:
• Kate Scarlet Harvey: Whizzing About
• Lauren Morsley: Daydreamers
• Katie Smith: The Swimmers
• Shweta Mistry: Little Butterflies
• Fiona Moon: Moonlight Garden
• Klara Sormark: Big Bee Seaside
Local Heroes, founded by design curator and exhibition maker Dr Stacey Hunter, is a curatorial studio that connects audiences with contemporary Scottish design. Previous Local Heroes projects include a digital presentation of Scottish jewellery collections at New York City Jewellery Week in 2020 during the pandemic when travel wasn’t permitted and an exhibition of specially commissioned design products presented at Edinburgh Airport during the Edinburgh International Festival.
On wet weather days, Daytrippers will be located inside the museum.
Limited edition woven jacquard 100% cotton beach towel: 80cm x 160cm, £30 Scottish Wildflower Seed Mixes: £6.50 or 3 packets for £18
Available to buy on the museum plaza, in museum and online.
