Their upcoming free exhibition, Eastern Ground, celebrates and explores the rich architectural and cultural heritage of Glasgow's East End. Led by designer Alis Le May, the nine-month-long project culminates in an immersive exhibition featuring garments, photographs, and wall hangings, each inspired by the architecture and stories from local residents.

Eastern Ground is born out of their larger, Eastern Ground Project, which consists of a series of workshops with young people from the East End of the city. It's hope is to connect young people to the heritage and creativity possible in this part of Glasgow. They will be encouraged to connect with historic buildings and the nature found in the area. Inspiration gathered from this experience is being taken into the Clothworks studio and used to learn textile design, sewing techniques, natural dying and print making. These workshops will be run by a range of practitioners who are specialists in their field.
Opening on 3 November until 12 November with an exclusive preview and celebration on 2 November 2023.
