October, 2018, at the Broomhill Art Flat

We spent most of Octoberat the Art Flat, gearing up for Inverclyde’s Galoshans Festival!

Our Textile Upcycling workshop with designers and costumers Steph Davidson and Susan McInnes, were making items from recycled materials to be used in a window display in the town centre of Greenock.  The Galoshan’s Parade was to pass through the centre and all the visitors to the parade would see their fabulous – if a little creepy – work!

The folks in Furniture Upcycling were also helping out in making decorations for a window display at Galoshans Festival.

Broomy’s Bairns made their own decorations to take home – with ghouls and ghost bunting and Hallowe’en lanterns made from donated glass jars and crepe paper.

To see more about what we got up to at, and leading up to Galoshans 2018, check out the video below.

Finally, October saw the start of a new workshop called Creative Movement. This workshop was lead by choreographer Laura Fisher and encouraged Broomhill residents to join her in looking at the architecture of the area, and how we interact with it.

The workshops culminated with a film being shot, to be screened in Broomhill at the end of February.
