Given Art Tea is based about as far away from the sea as you can get in the UK, the team were keen for at least one event to be at the seaside! In particular, they wanted to see Antony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’ sculptures at Crosby beach, near Liverpool.
At one Art Tea, they listened to wave music for inspiration to create a seascape for the background of the artwork. They had been given an old frame with a piece of board on the back, that they decided would be a perfect canvas.
After designing the artwork, all that was left was to visit the sculptures for themselves, and create the artwork! They collected loads of rubbish from the beach, put up the gazebo (which didn’t last long in the Merseyside wind!), and asked people to make their own ‘sculpture’ using the different rubbish to reflect their feelings about the place.
