Prescot Public Art Help Needed

Public Art Project

Two local artists are working on a mosaic depicting Prescot the place and its heritage. The mosaic will be on the wall of Max Spielmann in Prescot
They would really love for you to help in this process and invite you to come along to workshops so that you too can become a part of Prescot’s future heritage.
Whether it’s for five minutes or more, you can help in the cutting and placing of one or more of the 1000’s of tiles that will make up the mosaic.
No artistry skills needed for this mosaic by number, just enthusiasm and a willingness to help.

All workshops will be held in Prescot Shopping Centre in what was M & Co, on the lower atrium on the following days:
Saturday the 4th of March 11am – 1pm
Monday 6th of March 1 – 3pm
Wednesday 8th of March 11 – 1pm

For more information please contact: Lyndsey-Jane on 07773 575 856

Help shape the heritage initiative by taking part in consultations, or celebrate Prescot's history at events taking place throughout the project. Schools and colleges can also get hands-on with the past through activities and workshops for groups.

Heritage skills training

Historic buildings need people with the right knowledge to look after them. The THI will give people in and entering the local construction industry the opportunity to gain new skills and experience.

The THI will also help people find out more about careers in heritage.
