North Shields Library

Large-scale window artwork North Shields CFC and Library. Entitled ’North Shields – Turning the Tide’, it represents the maritime/fishing heritage of the town but can also be seen as a pointer to a regenerated North Shields.

We worked with children from local primary schools, who provided drawings of trawlers, cargo ships, ferries, and pilot tugs. We scanned and enlarged the pictures, then colourised them before placing them on our seascape. The artwork was produced on ‘sails’ and hung from the ceiling of the CFC. They can be viewed from outside and inside the library.
