  • Description

    Description

    Over the course of two years we have been renovating a glasgow tenement designed by the Architect greek thomson. the project is almost finished- all rooms, including the one you'd be staying in have been completed. Most remaining work is DIY and working with wood. There is also some wood to be chopped for the winter! If you are practically minded with some experience of using joinery tools get in touch!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Glasgow is obviously a great place to experience with lots going on culturally. I am often out at music performances or also going kayaking or to the hills /Islands - could join? Practically, a lot could be learned and how generally to help on a project and use a various of tools safely. I am a musical instrument maker by trade.

    Most remaining work is DIY and working with wood. There is a wood store to build outside, a cupboard to build and also some wood to be chopped for the winter! If you are practically minded with some experience of using joinery/woodworking tools get in touch! Definitely possible to learn a thing or two also!

    What else ...

    ...the west coast of scotland stretches north from here. I have been to much of it, have many maps , and often advise people where's best to go for trips for a given weather forecast. Here is an ideal launchpad. Previous volunteers have been to lots of interesting places.
