For the last of our heritage workshops with schools and youth groups at Linn Park Adventure Playground, children and young people explored weaving and carpet making, inspired by the Geddes Carpet Factory and Dye Works, which once stood where Holmhead Crescent and Holmhead Place are now.
In the 1700’s the factory was one of the area’s main employers and those taking part in the workshops were very busy producing their small masterpieces.
We have an exciting programme of activities taking place at Linn Park Adventure Playground over the summer for children with additional support needs aged 5+ and their families.
