Mackintosh Exhibition


  • City Campus, 2nd Floor



  • City Campus, 2nd Floor

As part of a major project to restore the original Willow Tea Rooms building on Glasgow's Sauchiehall Street, students at City of Glasgow College have been working on the production of a series of Mackintosh chairs which will feature as part of the final realisation of the tea room and the visitor centre. 

This has been a fascinating and challenging project as many of the originals have been badly 'restored' and no working drawings were available. This has been a major undertaking by our talented furniture students along with their lecturers. Additionally, students studying Illustration, Interior Design and Television Production have been collaborating to follow the story of the 'reconstruction' of the eight extraordinary chairs.

The college project is almost complete and to celebrate this we are staging an exhibition of the chairs.  If you would like to see the exhibition for yourself, it will take place on the second floor at City campus and will be open to the public as follows:-

  • Friday 27 April from 10am - 4pm.
  • Saturday 28 April 10am - 12 noon.
  • Mon 30 April - Friday 4 May 10am - 4pm.

The series of restored chairs will also form part of a permanent display 'Mackintosh at the Willow' at the Willow Tea Room Trust.
