BalenaProject_Birmingham 2008

Ikon Gallery / The Mail Box

An old Charity Shop was rented and transformed, for a few weeks, into a sewing shop, in Erdington area. Inside this old store, woolen whales have been sewn by non-professional seamstresses. The models were drawings done by children from the Erdington Hall Primary School at the conclusion of a rich and amusing week-long workshop held at the same school in July 2008, with the Ikon Gallery educational team.
