Glasgow Crafters Co-op

Glasgow Crafters Co-op are a small group of artists and makers who decided to work together to create the kind of events we always wanted to sell at. There are so many events of various natures around these days. Among those are some truly lovely well organised ones which we are all lucky to be part of. What WE hope to achieve with our Co-op are events and opportunities created from the viewpoint and experience of the maker behind the stall. We all have a vested interest in this. We all put our heart and soul into the things we make. We want to work with each other and use the unique skills and hopes that we all have. We want to create that image we all have in our 'selling head'. Bright space, bustling customers, co-operative venue, individual stalls each with different products and happy stallholders with coffee/tea in one hand and an order book in the other.
