T he annual Craftex competition and its associated exhibition provides a showcase for the very best work of students from the city's colleges. Encouraged by success in the competition many students have gone on to start up their own business.

None of this is possible without the support of our main partner for Craftex - Quilter Cheviot and our additional sponsors; Glasgow City Council and the Merchants House of Glasgow

Contributing to Craftex 2017 were students from the City of Glasgow College, Glasgow Kelvin College and Glasgow Clyde College. Trades House not only gives financial prizes for the best entries, but the work is exhibited in the Trades Hall, 85 Glassford Street, Glasgow, open to the public with free entry. This is a fantastic opportunity to see the best art, design craftmanship and technical skills that Glasgow's college student have to offer. It is always an incredible display and well worth a visit

This competition has been recognised by UK Skills as an outstanding national event.
