We are pleased to report on a number of activities that have recently taken place. Some of these activities were funded through the One City Trust.

4 August 2023 - Mixed Media Printing and Painting Workshop

As part of the ‘Filling the GAP: Granton Archive Project’ granton:hub hosted an art workshop with artist Beth Cockerline, aimed at children in celebration of Granton, its rich history and people. Using a range of beautiful images and words from the archive,  children were taught a printing method and use collage and paint to bring the images to life in your own unique colours and vision.

11 August 2023: Granton on Tiles photo transfer workshop

As part of the ‘Filling the GAP: Granton Archive Project’ artist Marta Adamowicz offered an art session to show youngsters, using the archive, a creative method of photo transfer an image onto ceramic tiles.

18 December 2023: The schools’ workshops enabled GAP to tell a large number of children and their teachers about the Archive, including those with special educational needs (ADHD etc) and from many cultural backgrounds.

The visit was organised with Lisa Kapur, City of Edinburgh Council and 2 schools were involved: Granton Primary School (24 pupils plus 1 teacher) and St David’s Primary School (approx. 25 pupils plus teacher) . Using the Archive and other internet sources, research was carried out and a PowerPoint created and presented at both schools.
