Eastern Ground consists of a series of workshops with young people from the East End of the city. It's hope is to connect young people to the heritage and creativity possible in this part of Glasgow. They will be encouraged to connect with historic buildings and the nature found in this part of the city. Inspiration gathered from this experience is being taken into the Clothworks studio and used to learn fashion design, sewing techniques, natural dying and print making. These workshops will be run by a range of practitioners who are specialists in their field.
They started in April and will run weekly until the end of September.
We are also recruiting for workshops running in the summer holidays July 4th - August 14th. To register your interest you can fill in a form here.
Support for the project comes from Glasgow City Heritage Trust and Creative Scotland.
We believe in a localised clothing culture. Glasgow Made is a digital directory where you can find makers easily. Visit Glasgow Made Website

MEND is an opportunity in a friendly space where you'll learn to mend clothes. Too many mendable clothes are thrown away, so come along and prolong the life of your favourite jumper.
From patching jeans, to raising hems, the team will guide, assist and provide all tools and materials. MEND will be an evening of mending, meeting and sharing skills.
