We are delighted to have taken part in Make It! an ACE project created by Wirral Libraries to turn libraries into creative spaces by bringing artists and eager makers together.
We worked with a wonderful group of talented ladies at Bebington library and together we took inspiration from the amazing architecture in Port Sunlight to create 3D models in card. We used the artwork to make two large collaborative pictures. Four different groups met at various libraries in the area. The work of all four individual groups will be exhibited at the Williamson Art Gallery on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th November and then the work will go on display at the individual libraries.
Further to the workshops we were commissioned to create a card modelling kit which we designed around the facades of 4 different building in Port Sunlight. The limited edition of kits will go on sale this weekend at the Williamson and then at Bebington Library.
We are delighted to have been featured in the June edition of Lancashire Life magazine talking about our work and contribution to Mirador’s “Behind The Wall” exhibition at Lancaster Museum. This is the lovely article by the Sue Riley featuring photos by Darren Andrews in the June issue of Lancashire Life about our recent collaboration with Mirador and six other artists on the Behind The Wall exhibition at Lancaster Museum. The exhibition looked at the last 150 years of a heritage site now used by Standfast, once a wagon works, WW1 billets and WW1 internment camp. It was lovely working with the Mirador team and Standfast & Barracks print works in Lancaster and exhibiting beside Michael Brennan Wood, Darren Andrews, Carolyn Bartlett, Katie Duxbury, Jon Randall and Adam Clarke. Our four legged pals will appreciate that even Coco and Beanie got a mention!
