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

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.
