Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival 2019

A chance to visit a once derelict tenement gap site, transformed for the community with a beautiful new building that inspires people to create, meet and come together.

In 2016 Glasgow City Council granted Woodlands Community a long-term lease on the derelict gap site on the corner of Ashley St and West Princes St. The site had lain empty since the mid 1990s after the last building was demolished due to mining subsidence. During 2016-7 we undertook major building works to bring the site back into community use and our new Community Meeting Room opened its doors to the public in October 2017.

With big, bright windows to create an open, airy space, our new Community Meeting Room is perfect for workshops, craft sessions, meetings, rehearsals, interviews and much more and is situated right next to our beautiful Community Garden.

Writing the Garden - Free Creative Writing Course

Have you ever told a friend about what you do in the garden? Maybe written a wee text to say the potatoes are flowering? Then you're well on the way to writing your way through the garden. If you can say it or make a text, you can write it.

Why write it? Because it's as good as growing some plants - it's something you can share with other folk or maybe just keep to yourself. Unlike supermarkets, where crooked carrots don't get a mention, there are no crooked words - no wrong words. In our sessions, we'll try all sorts of writing - no experience is necessary - to have fun and maybe to get us all sharing the joys of words and er, well, carrots. Or chrysanthemums or roses or cabbages. Even earthworms.

Gerry Loose will be the facilitator www.gerryloose.com
To book a place email lapidus.scotland.1@gmail.com
Email or phone woodlandsworkspace@gmail.com 0141 332 2656

There's a lot in common between writing and gardening. Both start small - seeds & words - and grow from there. The stories of growing - the droughts, slugs, pigeons, bad weather, too much sun, can make up a story or a poem or a great diary entry or memory or even personal writing which is only meant for the writer to see. In writing, we can explore recipes, paradises, imaginery gardens, seasons, garden work, wild gardens, city gardensand public gardens. Gardeners have so many stories to tell - and to write!

Books and Biscuits : meeting to discuss setting up a Woodlands Book Club

Fed up with Brexit?
Worried about Climate Change?
Wanting some good cheer to escape the doom and gloom?

Join us for our first meeting where we’ll discuss logistics, ideas and formats.

Have you read a book recently that has filled you with love, hope or inspiration?
Bring it along and share it with others.

No need to ‘book’ a space - just turn up!

We’ll put the kettle on and get the biscuits in :-)

Eco Print in Woodlands - The Rest of the Journey

Spend a day in the beautiful woodlands workspace to Eco Print and Stitch with the "Printing in Woodlands" community project

This workshop is part of the Printing in Woodlands community project ran by Eco Upcycler Elisabeth Viguie Culshaw in Woodlands in 2019. We are spending several month printing the garden onto paper and cloth to record the seasons and learn the craft of Botanical Printing.

During this workshop you will Eco Print some cloth and paper to keep but also help transforming the prints we have made over the past few months in beautiful objects to be exhibited in our pop up exhibition in November. In the process you will learn some simple bookbinding and multimedia techniques.

This is a very creative workshop working with natural elements and sharing communal time with like minded creative people.

Beginners are welcome, you will need to love all natural things, interacting with fellow participants and thinking out of the box.

You will leave with your prints, having made new Eco contacts and being part of an exhibition team...

For any info on the project check our FB page https://www.facebook.com/Printing-in-Woodlands-a-botanical-journey-364717574393015

Eco Printing in Woodlands

Eco Printing in Woodlands

Printing in Woodlands is a community project happening in the Woodlands Community gardens in the West end of Glasgow. Over several months we are using the natural technique of eco printing to record the botanicals growing in the garden. Banners, prints and hand bound books will be produced over time and shared with the community in a late autumn event.

To book: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/eco-printing-in-woodlands-tickets-64010797017

Eco Printing is a natural process creating beautiful prints out of steaming botanical material onto cloth or paper.

Over an afternoon of fun come and learn the basics and produce a piece of natural artwork, share coffee and cake with your fellow printers.

I am inviting you to come and take part in a 3 hours Eco Printing event and to become community eco printers for one afternoon.

You will be welcomed in the beautiful garden and be given a briefing on how to proceed. You will put a bundle together using local leaves and paper/cloth, and take part in the making of a communal piece, While our prints are steaming we will share coffee and cake and discover the beautiful community garden.

We will unrol the bundles around 4pm and share the good feel, you will be leaving with your beautiful unique work and a small record of the Woodlands garden. We will together open the communal bundle and take a group photo to be exhibited with our final work.

You will leave with your unique prints.

Eco printing is a natural dye technique, bring an apron and if you have some delicate hands latex gloves.

Please bring a piece of cake to share we will have a communal cake plate.
