First steps towards Community Making Space

The profile of 2 people in a room, sat opposite each other at a table. The person on the left has blonde, wavy, shoulder-length hair. They wear a long coat with a tartan-like pattern, dark bottoms and boots. The person on the right has brown, straight hair in a bob. They wear red glasses; a multi coloured knit scarf; a purple and yellow striped top and blue trousers. Both people are smiling and looking out the large shop-front window next to them. The window faces on to a row of two storey; brown; pebble dashed; terraced houses on the Main Street in Lumsden.November Coffee Morning (2021). Photo: Zoë Tumika.

At the beginning of December we were glad to welcome artist Kathrin Böhm of Myvillages to SSW for the first visit in the Rural School of Economics BEPART Fieldwork. The work with Myvillages will centre around our new Community Making Space, created through our current Capital Development Project.

As an opportunity for our friends and neighbours in Lumsden to visit the Community Making Space and meet Kathrin in the early stages of this work, we temporarily opened up what will be the Community Making Space for a much-needed coffee morning and chat. The plans for the space were available to pour over and examine, while the delicious cakes were baked by Beth, SSW Ceramics Technician (if you know you know, Beth makes the *best* cakes!).

This coffee morning was the first in-person event we’ve had at SSW since our site closure for capital development and our last event for 2021. It was really lovely to have faces familiar and new come by and an exciting way to see how this space will potentially be filled and held. We hope to host more of these coffee mornings in the coming spring!
