A five-week workshop series for anyone interested in learning skills in storytelling through sound. You’ll explore practical skills in audio editing, recording, and sourcing sounds online, and start to learn the basics of how you can make your own podcast or radio show. You’ll also have the chance to meet and form connections within a group. Each workshop will start with a group lunch. Through listening sessions and group discussions, you’ll have the chance to reflect on how we can capture themes and issues important to us, and record our daily environments, using sound. These workshops are facilitated by Sound Artist Ros Fraser, a radio producer and member of the Culture Collective team at Govanhill Baths. Support for public travel can be made available. Interpreters can be provided for people speaking English as a second language. Childcare support can be provided for those with childcare responsibilities. Please indicate what kind of access support you would require to attend in the booking form. Note: location field recording on 24 November.
Dreamlands Pottery Workshops
Fridays 09 Sep, 07 & 21 Oct, 04 & 18 Nov | 11:30am – 2:00pm The Deep End, 21 Nithsdale Road, Glasgow G41 2PZ
Artist Mina Heydari-Waite will be hosting workshops for the continuing ‘Dreamlands Pottery’ project. The workshops are open to women from global majority backgrounds who will meet every two weeks for clay-based work exploring dreams and talismans as tools of resistance. The group is open to all abilities, with beginners very welcome. Lunch and travel costs will be provided, and support for childcare can be arranged.
Our use of the word ‘women’ is inclusive of Trans and Intersex women, and this project is also open to non-binary people who are comfortable in a space that centres the experience of women. ‘Global majority’ is a collective term that refers to people who are Black, Asian, Brown, mixed-heritage, indigenous to the global south, and/or have been racialised as ‘ethnic minorities’. So by this we mean everyone from recently arrived new Scots to third generation women.

Social dreaming is a reflective practice in which people share their dreams and associated thoughts in a group, layering up a collaborative collage of images, ideas, cultural references and feelings. At the heart of social dreaming is the idea that our dreams may speak of the social contexts we are embedded in – our groups, our communities, our cultures – as much as they may speak of our inner lives. The aim of social dreaming is not to interpret a dream for an individual dreamer; instead it asks, what are we dreaming as a people?
Each workshop will be followed with a communal meal and support for public travel will be available. For more details, questions or to let us know about your access requirements, please contact Mina at firstname.lastname@example.org
Open to people of marginalised genders: including women and trans, intersex and non-binary people. Languages other than English. Childcare support can be provided for those with childcare responsibilities.
