This collaboration with schools, community groups and textile artists created four woven panels that celebrate the history and heritage of Parkhead, from handloom weaving to steel forging, workers' cooperatives and striking architeciture. We ran a series of workshops and events, combining weaving, creative craft skills and historical research, to reveal the spirit of Parkhead – the stories, people and places that make it unique. These inspired the design of the panels, which are destined for permanent display in the former, recently refurbished Parkhead Primary School.
