Bonker*s Clutterbucks are so excited to be taking part in this great project in Blackpool in conjunction with artists Tim Denton and Lois Blackburn, to work with the community and to come up with a range of quality sellable products inspired by the cities wonderful historic archives to be sold at The Grundy Art Gallery Shop and Tourist Office Shop. We plan to explore the cities wonderful historic archives and create some imaginative 3D card models and dioramas inspired by Blackpool architecture, transport and circus through workshops.
If you’re interested in taking part and live in the Blackpool area we’d love to see you there, details below.
Today we were given access to Blackpool’s precious historic archives at the Central library, what a gem! We were overwhelmed by history librarian Tony Sharkey and Anne’s help as they’d pre-selected an abundance of amazing imagery for us to to peruse and record. Together Peter & I took 517 photos, it was a wonderfully intense and inspiring time. We’re totally in awe of Blackpool’s amazing visual history and can’t wait to crack on with ideas for Project Object.
