For three days prior to the Manchester Day Parade Noah and I re-assembled the sculptures and converted them to moveable ‘art bikes’ though the addition of bike wheels, frames and some very dodgy steering!

This work took place in my studio and unfortunately our young artists were not able to work with us for various reasons.

They did join us on the day before the parade at a secret location in central Manchester to help with final preparations for the parade.

We spent all day in a warehouse full of other artists and makers all preparing for the parade.  An enjoyable and inspiring but very long day the end of which still left us with a lot to do to be ready for the parade…
