Barrhead Benches: These benches where designed and made in partnership with Galgael - a charity doing vital work with the long term unemployed of Govan. The brief was design five benches to create a bridge between the curves of the concrete remains of the former waterworks and the natural beauty of the plant life that has engulfed them. This was achieved through two curved benches through the traditional technique of steam bending to create the curved back ‘klinker’ boards – a process used in traditional boat building. The benches where made of oak, two of the benches with only part made. In collaboration with the local men's shed group we completed the benches. This resulted in a great community project where traditional skills are learnt and passed on.
