Big build-up to a great day out
KIDS got the chance to become involved with the Merchant City Festival and became Unicorns for the day.
Merchant Square Family Zone was set up with free Artist Run Workshops.
From unicorns, Greek temples and the Statue of Liberty, children were invited to discover Glasgow’s surprising heritage through lively art workshops in sculpture, costume and much more.
The unicorn is, unbeknown to many, the national animal of Scotland. Representing power and purity on our national coat of arms.
Youngsters had the chance to explore the weird and wonderful history of Glasgow in these family friendly artist led workshops.
They became Unicorns, made a shrine to their favourite Glasgow chippy, and built temples.
The event offered a range of diverse, quirky, sometimes messy, hands-on and stimulating activities.
Glasgow’s Merchant City festival finishes tomorrow where a street food festival will be held along with several other attractions.
