#craftbomb chairs

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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

Photos from the event #LetherbyTriangle

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Some photos from the festive evening on the 4 December . Thanks to everyone who helped on the day, turned up on the evening and a big thanks to the choir for such cheery singing. We also welcomed the Lord Provost and other councillors to the event to meet the neighbours of Mount Florida.

Through events like this one we hope to increase awareness of this sadly neglected space and of the School’s plans to regenerate and use the space productively as an asset for the pupils and the local community.

Due to its location, Mount Florida Primary School has very limited outdoor space for the pupils to use.

Our Parent Partnership, in conjunction with local and national government bodies, is looking at how the space around the School could be best used to enhance the learning experience of children from this community. Our aim is to regenerate and improve these spaces in a way that will also benefit the wider community in the long term.

We’d like to see the Letherby Triangle becoming a little oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle around us and hope this event is just the beginning.
