Welcome to the DC Newsletter, the first in a series over the coming year, which we are calling Trading Post. With so many of our traditional events cancelled or transferred to a zoom platform, it is important that we continue to spread news and share ideas across the Trades House family of crafts and organisations.
We’re pleased to announce the 3 winners of our the Prince Philip Prizes and Scottish Engineering Awards!

Our Hammermen Talks will be taking place on the 3rd Wednesday of every month. Each talk will be presented by a member of the master court.
Following in my father’s footsteps, and those of many notable Scottish engineering Masters, in ascending to the top office of Deacon in our Craft, I can really only say that it is an absolute honour to do so. Treading a path which has been meticulously laid out by the generations of Deacons before me and experiencing the best the people of Glasgow have to offer by way of charitable giving and education is somewhat dulled by the trying pandemic circumstances in which we find ourselves.
The Incorporation of Hammermen of Glasgow, founded to promote metalcraft skills, wants to encourage and reward young people studying for this and its modern equivalents in the many forms of engineering established today. The Craft is offering the above Prince Philip Prizes, for which the preliminary stage is participation in the Hammermen Awards, as presented below:
Annual General Meeting 18th September 2020
Given the current lockdown situation the Annual General Meeting will be held by Zoom.
On the evening of 14th November, we held our Annual Dinner – and we’re delighted to say that we had a full house, almost at capacity. The theme of the evening was “Innovation and Enterprise”, a theme which was used by our three speakers to thoroughly entertain and inform guests.
Those who attended the Hammermen Dinner 2018 will have undoubtedly met members of the Master Court, including Chris Vine, as they tried to convince you to buy either the Hammermen Tie or the lapel badge, or both.
