William Chambers

William Chambers is a Scottish milliner based in Glasgow, who creates bespoke hand-made hats, headpieces, bridal millinery and flowers.

Birds and architecture are two subjects that William cites as his inspiration, and this is evident in the shape, texture and detailing in his work. He mixes traditional materials such as felt and synamay with contemporary materials like latex, plastic and metallic leather.

William provides a free consultation service for exclusive commissions, working with the client to create the perfect hat or headpiece that will suit the outfit and the occasion. Consultations take place at his city centre studio, where William will discuss materials, style, colour, shape and size. Customers living further afield can consult by phone or email. Once the design is agreed, production will usually take a few days to three weeks.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 2 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
