In 2017 we launched the first in the Braw Wee Emporium Workshop programme since then we've had over a 100 people through our doors attending one-off craft workshops. Each week we receive requests from customers for more workshops so, in 2018, we are keen to extend the types of workshops we offer by offering up the Braw Wee Emporium space to tutors, designers, makers to deliver new workshops. 

So far we are hosting our regular Lamp Shade/ Bottle Lamp Workshops, Learn to Weave with Squid Ink, and Beginners Brush Pen Calligraphy with Toasty Type

The Space

The Braw Wee Emporium is based within the Barras Art & Design Centre, in the East End of Glasgow. BAaD is home to A Challtainn Fish Restaurant and Bar and a number of other creative businesses surround the covered courtyard/ event space managed by A Challtainn.

Depending on the workshop we can host 5 – 10 participants. We use the door stairs space in the shop, so we are currently limited to running workshops out of hours (Shop currently open 12pm – 6pm Wed to Fri & 10.30 -5.30pm Sat & Sun). 

 Facilities available. 

  • 3 x 6ft trestle tables and chairs available for use.
  • Refreshments can be provided.
  • WIFI available
  • Plug sockets & extension cables can be provided.
  • We have a toilet and very small sink available – however, there are public toilets in the bar area for participants.
