This year saw the welcome return of the annual Trades House of Glasgow Craftex competition, which was being held for the first time since 2019. Craftex showcases the skills of students in Glasgow’s colleges and we’re delighted that hospitality student Abby Dyer was announced as the winner of one of the top awards, receiving the Deacon Convener's Design Prize for her stunning fairy-tale book made of bread.
