Being Here! was a site specific action research project working with women living in Muirhouse.
Over a period of 8 weeks the women were introduced to traditional jewellery making skills.
'This has been amazing. I didn’t know I could make!!!'
'My confidence has grown so much…. I love making!'
'My health was really poor before I started coming to these workshops now, I just love coming along and making’.
