On The Road

7 Aug

On Wednesday, Chris the Sketchybeast joined a coach expedition to Wales with locals from Bootle and Linacre. Like Cliff Richard in Summer Holiday, but drawing instead of singing, Chris led a number of activities including a sign quiz (try it yourself here), a memory sharing and signage design for the installation. Again, lots of signs prohibiting the throwing of rubbish in the canal, and also one about not throwing your cat in there. My favourite though has to be the warning sign that warns about the dangers of signs themselves!


Under Pennington Road Bridge

7 Aug

A modern re-telling of The 3 Billy-goats Gruff, where we as Re-Dock play the troll, and the goats are played by canoeists, barges, bmx bikers and dog walkers. Actually its a video document of our workshop under the bridge by the site of the Constellation Of Signs installation.

Workshop #09 – #10 – Pennington Road Bridge – process

31 Jul

Today we took the workshop to the site itself. The grey morning weather forced us under the bridge but it turned out to be a great move as we met loads of people using the canal: 3 canoeists, a few runners, 6 barges, several lads on bikes, lots of families and a shedload of dog walkers.

Friday night youthclub takes a brief hiatus from footy to draw warning signs of giraffes, and directions to the nearest canal chippy. But don’t you dare bring any hammers into the underwater glass tunnel.
