Craft Takeover at The Burrell Collection

Saturday 25 February, 2023

Experience the best of Glaswegian craft with our Craft Takeover on Saturday 25 February from 11am-4pm across our galleries.

Learn about the artistic practice of local craft groups, from beading and lace making to the work of groups such as Art Space G41.

Try your hand at taster sessions of woodblock printing with Mobile Printing Studio, lacemaking with Jean Leader, beadwork with Nan Mackay Beadwork Group and much more!

If you’d like to try a longer craft session, there will be workshops in embroidery and glass engraving which you can sign up to on the day at our reception desk.

For the littlest of crafters, we also have paper weaving and face painting.

If you’d like to learn even more about the history of some of the craft objects in our collection, you can also join a volunteer led tour asking ‘How do they make that?’, delving into the artistic practice behind the work.

With plenty to do for all the family, join us in our galleries from 11am on Saturday 25 February.
