Panel beaters

Since September 2009, artist Alan Birch working on behalf of Artists in Schools. Bolton, has been working with four primary schools in the Tonge Moor district of Bolton. Over a series of 12 workshops, pupils from Bolton Parish , Tonge Moor, Moorgate and Castle Hill Primary Schools, produced a series of prints using the theme of transport, past, present and future.

Children at Bolton Parish ink their plates.

These prints were used to design a series of 24 panels, fabricated by Luke Lister Blacksmiths in Stockport. These painted plasma cut panels were then attached to lamp posts on Tonge Moor Road in Bolton.
