1-Day Workshop: Recoat X Harvest – On the Corner
20 participants were brought together to draw, explore and experiment while creating a collaborative mural in the great Glasgow outdoors across 18 street-level shutters to help regenerate community-based centre On the Corner.

Jamie Johnson, one of the founders of Harvest Skateboards and Amy Whiten of Recoat share a background in Illustration and both make work for exhibition, clients and on the street.
In their personal and business lives they push for and love collaborative projects, believing that it can be a key way to develop and grow the best work. It was only natural for them to partner with community-focused centre On the Corner to paint 18 street level shutters in Glasgow’s East End to promote the work On the Corner are doing and help regenerate the area.
