    It’s hard to believe we’re more than half way through Creative Summer Camp already … time flies when you’re having fun … and there’s certainly been a lot of fun in week 3. Maria’s guitar lessons have identified some fantastic natural talent which resulted in a jamming session. Lots of time was spent outdoors in the park, enjoying the warm weather and some stars emerged in the Drama session and funny face competition!SONY DSC

  4. Dumbaron Rocks! – Our visit to DACA

    2 Comments

    Last week we visited DACA (Dumbarton Area Council on Alcohol) to find out more about the great work they do…Here is Gerry’s blog and a few pictures he took on the day..

    “We visited DACA last week to film and interview people involved on the project. We asked what services are provided and how people have been helped by coming to the project. Everyone we met was very open, friendly and hospitable and had a great sense of humour too! From talking to folk, we realised that DACA is a place you can go when you’re feeling down and need to talk to someone. The project gives people a huge boost in confidence, and is somewhere you feel safe in the knowledge that there are others in the same situation as yourself.”

    As the temperature soars outside we need to take time to chill out! So what better way than to sit quietly contemplating over a concoction of beads and cords. We have gone a bit boho this week using cord in a double threading technique called ‘ladder stitch’. So many different looks from one technique, but I would say the only accessories needed for this look is a bikini and a beach! Margaret, you definitely got your mojo back!

  7. Heres Tae Your Health – Project update

    Leave a Comment

    We’re a few weeks into the project now, and the team are in full swing with their research for the film. We’ve had some very interesting discussions about Scottish culture and identity, and it soon became apparent that we have so much to be proud of. However there are still many questions surrounding our relationship with alcohol – some of which we aim to answer in the coming weeks.

    Last Friday we were joined by Vera and Louise from the Glasgow Council on Alcohol who kindly allowed us to film some of the alcohol awareness activities they do in the community.

    On Saturday we took a trip out to Summerlee Industrial Museum where Tam McGarvey took us “time travelling” through the miner’s cottages to see how work and society has changed over the years. As ever, good banter and bad jokes (from DC) made the day.

  9. Govan Banners Screening at Kinning Park

    Seniors at KP Cinema Club

    A big thanks to Michael, Liam and Laura Jane at the KPC Social Cinema Club for making us feel very welcome at the screening of “The Govan Banners” on Tuesday night.

    By great coincidence we had Sheila and Ernest in the audience – two young people from Spain, who had come to the Complex for a yoga class, but decided to stay for the film instead (sorry, yoga teacher). After the screening, Ernest shared his own family stories and they informed us that they had not been aware that people from Scotland had gone to fight fascism in the Spanish Civil War. We had an interesting and heartfelt discussion and by the end of the night the group had gained yet another group of young fans.

    Great work on the technique of cord knotting and creating bead clusters! Ibrox is operating as a Progressors Course and with so many new faces at Cardonald we are happy to run at Beginners Level. Might start awarding ‘unexpected quote of the week’ – we all burst out laughing when Isobel (after sighing and tutting and fighting with her knots throughout), held up her necklace at the end and exclaimed “Yes, I liked that class!”
