Urban Boxes Workshop
September 5, 2016
This Saturday saw a cardboard metropolis emerge at the Hive in Haggerston.
Children and their families used recyclable materials such as cardboard boxes and plastic bottles to build their own imaginary city in the middle of the gallery space.
With the help of some paint, pipe cleaners and glitter they transformed the empty spaces of the boxes into skate parks, churches, swimming pools and fountains, reflecting the principals of urban regeneration at the centre of the Hive.
