Craftex is part of the first Trades House Education Festival, which brings all its educational events and awards under one banner. It is a unique initiative in the City, and one which Trades House hopes will help to motivate, inspire and reward those in education, from primary school children up to students and modern apprentices. The events run predominately over two weeks and includes initiatives such as the Trades House of Glasgow Modern Apprentice Awards, the Glasgow School Craft Awards and Determined to Make Movies.

Craftex is an ideal platform for students to showcase their work in a city centre exhibition, win prizes and gain industry recognition, make industry contacts and create employment opportunities for themselves. They are exhibiting alongside the best of Glasgow’s colleges’ students, and with over 50 categories ranging from Graphics to Nail Art, Industrial Product Design to DVD Technology and Plasterwork, there is a section for everyone.
