We are a cooperative that seeks to connect people by engaging them in making beautiful things. Our tangible products have meaning - made from glass and ceramics – they link back to an older Glasgow. We make our products ‘out in the open’ so that people’s curiosity is aroused. Our products, each and every one, contain a physical aspect found on the streets of Glasgow. Each product has a story – and so do its makers. We attempt to help people feel like they belong – Jangling Space is a cooperative – and therefore it follows values and principles that cherish learning, cooperation, participation, democracy. We champion a working practice that is interdependent and collaborative, seeking to actively involve people as both participant and collaborator in the on-going realisation of the space. By providing a collaborative activity our aim is to foster a sense of belonging and decision making in the local area; to promote individual and collective ownership of Glasgow/our community. We seek a shift from a ‘sit-back-and-be-told culture’ to a ‘making-and-doing culture’. People naturally want to make their mark on the world; they want to connect. At Jangling Space, we offer a chance to realise this vision.
