Funded by Friends of Muir Housing we will be working with families from the Revoe / Central Drive area on Monday 14th  December 6pm – 8pm.

The participants will start an outline of the letters and take the kits home to finish in their own time.

In preparation for the workshop we made up cross stitch packs with Mr Dee’s graffiti designs.

Subway cars for graffiti at Spare Part Festival Tram Sunday 20th July 2014

Subway cars  for people to add their own graffiti to

The build when we arrived with all the pieces

DSCF3492 DSCF3493

As  part of the live paint event Mr Dee with the help of our photographer Lee Hodgkiss and our new organisation member David Jennings we created and built 2 small subway cars on wheels that later joined the Tram Sunday parade.

Boz Phillips set up a workshop for  or should I say ‘put out paint all day’ for enthusiastic children , parents and members of the public to paint the subway cars with their graffiti.

The subway cars were a big hit thanks to Mr Dees’ ideas and Dave and Lees help.

Everyone loved the opportunity to decorate the cars from 12 noon until 3.30  when the parade commenced.

See for yourself the participants work below.
