Behind the process: timelapse by Barrhead's Creative Pathways team

The young people on our Creative Pathways: Environmental Design course in Barrhead have been getting hands-on experience of a huge number of creative and design techniques.

Here's an example. They were looking for an interesting way to visualise their planning processes, as they build towards an environmental project at a local greenspace. They produced a chalkboard incorporating silhouettes of the team into the border.

The team traced, taped, and spray-painted their likenesses around the border of a painted plywood board. The process helped them gain a greater understanding of digital and physical design.

Recording the process by film, they then had the opportunity to pick up an understanding of film-making skills by editing the footage into this fantastic timelapse. Have a look below!


The Creative Pathways: Environmental Design is for young unemployed people, engaging them in creative activities while simultaneously preparing them for work through employability training. It is funded by Barrhead Housing Association, Inspiring Scotland's 14:19 Fund and the Big Lottery Fund's Our Bright Future initiative.
