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!!!!.

Well that came around quickly!!!

The sun is out in Glasgow, the Games have started in style and with the track and field events beginning at Hampden on Sunday we had better get a move on and install all of this along our route before then.

Follow us on twitter or Facebook to see photos when we get a chance to post them or come and visit the craftbomb once it is installed.

Off to stitch and sew now with lots of lovely people.

Being doing a little prep for the workshop at Carcap tonight from 6.30 -8.30 pm. Please feel free to join to learn how to make the birds for the craftbomb route. All materials will be provided and there are refreshments too.

Children are welcome along as well. There will be a workshop for them where they can draw animals from the Commonwealth and help turn them into felt creations.

We are in the main hall with the kitchen at the back of the church. Come in through the side door and follow the posters down the stairs……
