    1 Comment

    Aw the end of our Beginners Jewellery Making Courses at Brand Street and the Stewart Centre … fantastic work done by everyone and we’ve really enjoyed getting to know each other. Cheryl – great to hear all the comments your gran got wearing your jewellery to the wedding – and Anne-Marie getting all those likes on facebook about your jewellery – and Kathleen your friend who never wears fashion jewellery changed her mind and wore yours! We did good! (Great to see some faces at our Time Out class at the Portal.)
    Due to popular demand we will continue with Progressors level jewellery Oct-Dec. A festive frenzy of present making is planned ….

    A group of forgotten champion boxers who emerged from one tough street in Barrowfield. Only one was destined to take home gold.

    This is the remarkable story of Bobby Mallon a Boxer from Barrowfield, Glasgow who despite his visual impairment went on to win the Gold medal at the 1962 Commonwealth games in Perth, Australia as an amateur Flyweight. In his eventful career Bobby fought over 300 opponents as an Amateur Flyweight and Bantamweight, and fought and won against the likes of Alan Rudkin, Jim Watt and John McCluskey. Bobby also won an ABA title and 5 western district medals at 3 different weights.

    Despite his successes Bobby Mallon has been forgotten.

    This film will trace his life story from his humble beginnings, triumphs in the ring and finally his return home as a hero to the Scottish people. We will take a look at the story of the boxers that emerged from the same street as Bobby and the legacy they have left behind.

    A great day experimenting with wire-work at Castlemilk. We transformed beads into pendants and embellished with wire-work for an individual piece. All it takes is a little bit of practice and confidence using the round nose pliers and no two pieces are the same! We think they look pretty classy. Well done!
