STORE Projects, Ercol Furniture + Blackhorse Workshop are collaborating to give you an insight into the product design industry, for William Morris Design Line 2021.
This opportunity is for those aged 15 – 18, prioritising those who live / study / play in Wood St or William Morris wards, and attend a state school.
We are seeking an artist to work with our young local group and give our Tool Lending Library a splash of colour. Read the artist’s brief here.
The Tool Library building is very nondescript and although it is on a main road it is set back from the pavement and not very noticeable. We want to make the building much more eye-catching and welcoming so that people won’t just walk by it. The mural will be part of a few physical enhancements to the site including planters, benches and signposting that are all being community led. The Tool Lending Library is a community facility and we want to give it a splash of colour to really help bring it to life.
The artwork will need to be:
- eye catching
- able to blend the art styles of realism and impressionism to the theme of nature, grass, flowers, trees. Some of the mural will need to be done in the style of Minecraft building blocks. (at the request of the youth group!)
- appealing to local community, visitors and passers by
- draw attention to the Tool Library and help raise its profile.
- long lasting, weather proof, vandal proof and able to grow old gracefully if the option of maintenance is not feasible.
