February 28, 2009

The Waggonways project ran across a great area of North Tyneside, celebrating the industrial heritage of the area and promoting new leisure facilities and cycle ways etc. My brief was to work with pupils of  St Peters school in Wallsend to create 6 floor mosaics and 2 murals. I wanted the floor mosaics to be simple and robust and make an immediate reference to the mining industry.
