Sewn ART Docklands Cranes

The rapid change to the London Docklands has been staggering, but am glad that they have retained some of the old cranes that served the shipping, packing and unloading cargo for well over a hundred years. In a time when the Docklands was one of the most important query sides in London, so it’s a fitting blast to the past. I love these huge, iron structures still looming tall on the edge of the water after all those years, like giant obsolete metal sculpture’s. So here’s my pictures, in fabric, developed from my sketchers. I kept them in black & white, fabric, sewing the shapes together on a machine and by hand making it same simple and dramatic as possible.

These Cranes are found just before you cross the Blue bridge over the South Docks which is the main road into The Isle of Dogs, Docklands.
