Brockley artists strike again!

Some of you may have noticed the new mosaic being created outside Brockley Station. It's shaping up beautifully, and depicts cherry blossom.

The three-metre-long artwork is being designed and installed by local residents Capture Arts in association with the Broca and BEEP (the Broca's Everyone's Enterprising Project) and the Brockley Cross Action Group.
They are planning to create similar mosaics in Crofton Park and Blythe Hill.

The work is still ongoing - the organisers anticipate two more days of grouting and they are appealing for a half dozen volunteers with steady hands and if possible, tiling experience to help out. People must be physically able to kneel or crouch steadily for up to an hour at a time. Anyone with an interest in helping design the rest of the wall is also invited to pop along for a chat.

An offical opening ceremony and tea party will take place in late November when the other mosaics are in place.

BC will post up some pics soon!

I was sceptical I'll admit but it looked lovely this morning. A far cry from the cheap looking and poorly finished station works that surround it. I hope it lasts.

Where exactly is the mosaic being created?

On the wall bordering the big new set of steps, opposite the Broca and Browns.

I was wondering if anything was planned for that wall. Sounds great - I will pop along for a look tomorrow.

I'm working up in sunny Glasgow at the moment, so would love to see some pictures of the mural posted.

Thanks Kate. Sounds like it will brighten up the are considerably and detract from the rather harsh steps/ramp/walling. I'll pop down and have a look.

Nice idea, maybe it could be incorporated into other areas that need tidying up.

Its worth adding that the 'cherry blossom' motiff has a context for the area. Specifically, the trees that well felled in order to create the steps where Cherry trees.

Therefore the mosiac is indeed rather fitting for the area as it has meaning behind it.

most of it was covered up when I walked past this afternoon but the bit I could see looked nice, I think this is a great idea

Mosaic is very tasteful. Can we have cherry trees along the path please?
