    The D.A.F.T Media Group were invited to the BBC and were treated to a buffet of food and drinks. They spent the evening brainstorming creative ideas and learning how they can be involved in content in future. We had an amazing time, thanks to BBC Scotland for having us!

    Our latest crafty group who meet on Tuesday (who are so busy crafting that they’ve not decided on their name yet!) have started thinking about Xmas by designing these super trendy chokers. With the Govan Loves Xmas event in mind, the group began a ‘make one and donate one’ with a choker being made to contribute to our annual craft table at the event.

     

  3. World Mental Health Day

    It’s #WorldMentalHealthDay.

    The stigmatising of mental health problems is something we believe shouldn’t exist. Every person will suffer from a mental illness at some point in their life and it’s vital we’re all there for one another.

    If you’re suffering from mental illness, know you’re never alone. Seek support. Take care of yourself and each other.

    We’ve been having a busy week here in Gallery 966 with our lovely canvas display still proudly sticking (just about) on the wall.

    Thanks to the skills sharing of Katie, Gillian and Donna of the Bead ‘n’ Blether group, the Time Out group made these fabulous frames yesterday morning. Everyone involved loved the end result!

    We said hello to a new arts & crafts group starting at Gallery 966 today. Two groups from the Govan Health Centre and Brand Street Health Centre have joined together for a new group every Tuesday 11am – 1pm, but they need a name! Can you suggest some crafty names for us? Puns and wordplay are welcome!

    Our groups have recently finished working on their large canvas display just in time for Self Management Week and it’s looking smashing up on the wall at Gallery 966! Everyone worked hard and put a lot of emotion into their pieces.
