Patterns of The Commonwealth
Glasgow Commonwealth Games Cultural Programme
Creative art workshops exploring some of the rich textile pattern traditions of the Commonwealth countries at Glasgow Green family zone during the Games and at The Portal in Govan as part of Festival 2014.
The shared similarities and histories between various countries and cultures are celebrated, with a special focus on connections with Scottish & Gaelic culture.
Textile patterns and associated cultural bonds to them inspired new pattern designs by participants, and then made and translated into flags for people to have and use as part of the Commonwealth celebrations.
Collaboration with artists Alex Bowie and Fiona Fleming for Glasgow Life.
