Current Exhibition: Weave Parkhead!

Weave Parkhead! is a collaboration between schools, community groups, weavers and archaeologists to create a series of four woven panels celebrating the history and heritage of Parkhead. Over the past 2 years the Weave Parkhead! team have run a series of workshops and events in and around Parkhead, combining weaving , creative craft skills and historical research with the aim of revealing the spirit of Parkhead – the stories, people and places that make it unique. The conversations had during these sessions have informed and inspired the design of the panels.

The panels were completed in the summer of 2016 and will be installed in the foyer of the former Parkhead Primary School on Westmuir Street. In the meantime, the Weave Parkhead! exhibition is travelling around the city, beginning in March with a stint at Glasgow Kelvin College’s Haghill Campus, where a group of Art & Design students created their own artwork in response to the panels and designed and curated an expanded exhibition.
