The Project

“I look forward to this every week, thank you!”

I told her it was a bit of a domestic, whatever, and she said I had a terrible ordeal and I went to a place, I know it’s difficult, but just do it, nobody knows you, just chap the door and ask for Emily, tell her I sent you.” 

The Daisy Project offers a lifeline for many women across the southside of Glasgow who have experienced domestic abuse.  Beyond advocacy support for court, it offers longer-term therapeutic and rehabilitative support in adaptive and responsive ways, to meet women’s needs.

The women at Daisy Project are learning how to create their own stained-glass panel, through a bespoke 15-week programme of art tuition.  During the 15-week (recurring) course, they will be introduced to the craft of stained-glass art.  In addition to the hands-on experience of making their own piece, they will visit WASPS studios, to see the whole process through to leading and firing.  The finished works of art will belong to the women who made them, but will be exhibited as part of GlassWalls, in the final installation.

We hope that the exhibition will launch in November 2019, to coincide with 16 Days of Action.
