HIGHAM HILL HUT

A resident consultation developed the theme for the mural. With nature and wildlife the preference to reflect the Hut's immediate surroundings there was only one man for the job. Xenz painted the Higham Hill Hut over three days. 

The finished mural includes oxes, geese, flowers (specifically poppies), birds and leaves/foliage - the poppies also refer to Remembrance Day, honouring those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.

Our inaugural street art event ran over 3 weeks and involved 18 artists painting across Walthamstow. Backing from Skyjack as part of their 30 for 30 initiative & sponsorship Fermax enabled us to paint over 15 murals to raise awareness for the need of affordable artist workspace in urban areas such as London.

PICK YOUR PATTERN

Celebrating William Morris has always been a goal of WSW and after painting a 5x5m portrait of the man himself it was always going to be ATMA to do the job. Securing the gable end wall next to the William Morris gallery was the first coup for the team but when they realised they could not only paint the mural but use it as an opportunity to embrace Morris' quote "Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.

Working with the William Morris Big Local, they enlisted the help of the HEET project to help locating the right organisation to install side insulation to improve on the home's energy efficiency and also flatten the wall to make it a perfect surface to paint. Retrofit Works and Be Constructive came forward and aided the installation process prior to painting. 

A public consultation took place to decide between 6 of Morris' iconic patterns and reached over 1100 votes.

QUALITY STREET

Already supporting local initiatives and events such as Hackney WickED, L&Q identified the negative attitude held by artists towards developers and constructors developing the area and wanted to implement a campaign to offer a creative outlet that would mitigate the graffiti seen across other developments.

L&Q sought the help of Wood Street Walls CIC, whose artists are currently based in Hackney Wick, to consult on the approach to ensure local talent was represented and 180m of hoardings surrounding the perimeter of the site was covered with artwork.

We worked with local Walthamstow MP Stella Creasy & the WE17 community group to create a map of local shops and businesses to encourage residents to participate in December 2016. The map was launched at the beginning of December, with over 4000 maps being delivered by local business Parker Dairies. It was the first map to feature Wood Street Studios, with the map design created by illustrator & graphic designer Aimee Capstick.

As part of the redevelopment of Walthamstow Central station, LBWF wanted to install a mural that would capture the essence of the area. We wanted to harness the local community’s input so carried out a series of polls - in person at the station, online and on our stall at the Walthamstow Garden Party - which resulted in over 500 votes. The mural was painted by local art group Bread Collective.

THOMAS GAMUEL SCHOOL

As part of a school make over, Thomas Gamuel School wanted to brighten up its porter cabins with art to inspire the students. Having worked with Malarko in Leyton and seeing the impact his art had on passing school kids he was the perfect fit for the job. Taking inspiration from a kids alphabet book he used colours and themes that would educate as well as ignite their creativity. 

When the term started WSW and Malarko lead a workshop in which the pupils were encouraged to develop characters using the murals as inspiration.

Visitors were also able to find out more about Wood Street Walls, vote in the This is E17 poll, purchase STATIC artwork and enter a raffle. Over the weekend we engaged with over 5000 people directly and raised over £700 for Wood Street Studios.
