    Uncategorized By Tina Kardasinska Leave a Comment

    Time Out enjoyed a final Xmas session to end this year with a Sugar Craft class that was finger-lickingly good!! Iced snowmen, snowflakes and delicate flowers that need a steady hand and a sweet tooth. The class was such a success everyone is desperate to learn more about this craft. Well done to everyone for making the group so welcoming! We will re-commence on Tuesday 13th January and Karen will be back to share more Sugar Craft skills with us! You may see an extravagant wedding cake in our window one day!

    Gallery 966 last Thursday evening saw participants from the Community Ceramics Project gather together to enjoy the beautiful finished ceramic work from the project, which has been running in the Portal AIR Space this year. The exhibition displayed ceramic tiles designed and created by pupils from Govan High School (S2), The Portal AIR Space Art class and The Portal Seniors Film Club.
    During the project, the use of architectural ceramics in traditional buildings in Govan was explored and people had the opportunity to make some new ceramic tiles. Through local walks and visits to tenement ‘wally’ closes and public buildings around Govan, a variety of traditional architectural ceramics including decorative wall tiles and floor mosaics were seen and documented, and some of the typical design styles such as Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco were explored.
    The project has been implemented as part of the Govan Cross Townscape Heritage Initiative, and aims to raise awareness of the importance and special character of Govan’s listed buildings alongside the wider conservation and regeneration work currently being carried out in the Central Govan area.
