Clean and Green for 2019!

12th Mar 2019

If you have visited Redbrick recently you may have noticed the big clean up operation that has started around the rear Jack Lane car park.

The plan is to transform the space with the addition of a geometric mural across the facades of the shipping containers, designed and installed by our very own Charlotte from Studio Papiyon on the mezzanine level.

Studio Papiyon is a quirky concept store and studio workspace which features customised clothing, handmade jewellery, greetings cards, stationery, art, gifts and homewares all sourced from local creative brands.

Charlotte has worked in Redbrick for 5 years and loves to immerse herself in a hands-on creative project!

So with the help of the Redbrick team, Charlotte has embarked on a huge clean up operation and mural installation which is now well underway (she may have bribed us all with some delicious coffee and cake from our Fig & Olive cafe)

The mural design evolved from architectural photographs taken of Redbrick and the surrounding area. As a former textile mill,  the patterns are inspired by the production of woven textiles.

The mural installation also celebrates the 100 year anniversary of the Bauhaus, a key movement in the world of design. Charlotte has taken inspiration from the work of Bauhaus textile designer Annie Albers as well as London-based mural artist Camille Walala in the creation of the designs.

In keeping with the theme in the front car park an artificial grass roof will be added to the containers for a much needed injection of greenery by West Yorkshire Artificial Lawns at Redbrick.

We can’t wait to show you the finished project, make sure you head down to Redbrick to see the transformation!
