Glasgow Craft Mafia

All sewn up

A good fortnight for deftly-fingered west coast types, this. Scotland’s most terrifying crochet enthusiasts, the Glasgow Craft Mafia, have huge presence in the city, sending their heavies round to Mono for one of their all-day craft markets on Sunday 29 March, and offering advice on the gentle art of making jewellery from beads on Thursday 26 March, at Partick’s Bead Company. We advise you not to turn down this, er, ‘offer’: you don’t really want to find yourself going for a swim in a nattily-decorated set of hand-stitched concrete shoes. Meanwhile, one of our favourite young designers, William Chambers (pictured), a milliner who has designed for the likes of Roisin Murphy, is giving a workshop in creating basic headpieces at Che Camille on Saturday 21 March. And he has no mob connections whatsoever. That we know of.

William Chamber's Millinery Course - Basic Headpiece

'List' favourite William Chambers, an excellent young Glasgow designer who makes gorgeous hats and headpieces for the likes of Roisin Murphy, offers an introduction to building a basic headpiece. You can take your creation away at the end of the day, too, you lucky little soldier.
