scattercraft afterschool craftclub – bottle top project install

Today was the day of the bottle top installation, and while still a little windy at least the sun came out !! The photos show the pieces installed and is a fantastic and vibrant addition to the playground. It’s the result of all the hard work by the children, the parents involved in the scattercraft afterschool craft club and Altron and Blanche from Rags to Riches. THANK YOU!!!

The playground is slowly being transformed in different ways. Let us know if you spot it! #mofloplayground

scattercraft update

Well it’s not been quite a year since the last post but is has definitely not been recent. That doesn’t mean that scattercraft has been quiet. If you have been following us on Twitter and Facebook you will see that weekly meetups with Knitwits at Langside Library and a new little meetup at the Clockwork Beer Company have been happening on Tuesday evenings. A few eager beaver parents have been working on an after school craft club and this has been going since about last September in CARCAP with great stuff for school events and just for fun at events in the school.

The latest project at the CraftClub has been with Rags to Riches and the children (and parents) have been learning about recycling and design. This fab new work will be installed in the school playground at the end of the month and is part of a much bigger scheme that the parents, children and staff have been working on to redevelop the space. As part of this we currently are looking for as many votes as possible on the AVIVA Community Fund in order to win £25,000 towards major work to convert the playground from a bare tarmac surface into a play space that inspires and allows all of our children opportunities to be creative through play. PLEASE VOTE FOR US IF YOU CAN.

And on a final note.

The Mount Florida Parent Partnership are up for an Education Scotland Award for Parents involved in Learning. We are down to the final 3 so will let you know how we do at the Awards Ceremony on 10 June – wish us luck!!!!.

Just to say we have added some chairs so you can enjoy your lunch or local takeaway in Letherby Triangle… though please use bins for rubbish afterwards thanks x.

Wandered through as people were leaving Hampden today and loving the reaction to the knitting. Will have to have a ‘hug a lamppost’ photo competition soon!

#Glasgow2014 #craftbomb INSTALLED

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Mount Florida is looking vibrant and colourful and it’s all thanks to over 280 children and adults who have contributed to the project over the last 3 months. We have had an amazing and inspiring 2 days installing. Lots of lovely feedback, including a lady from Vanuatu, now living in Glasgow, who found a photo on Facebook and googled Mount Florida to find it before she came to visit it. She managed to meet Sarah who made the work! Here’s the photo

The other unexpected lovely enjoyment about the installation was seeing people linger in Letherby Triangle and use it. Spending some time in there has given us ideas for the future and it was great to see people hanging out there. The sun helped with installation and made it a brilliant couple of days and really enjoyed chatting to people who stopped by to thank us for the project and comment on the work. There are loads of photos on flickr so pop over to our page there to see them.

If you would like to know more about the project, scroll down through the previous blog posts, or visit the project page or down load the press release here SCATTERCRAFT PRESS RELEASE JULY 2014

We hope you enjoy seeing the craftbomb as much as we have had making it!

WELCOME TO MOUNT FLORIDA – a great place to live in Glasgow
