The Big Green Recycled Queen

Myself and Richard Dawson worked with local kids to make this amazing sculpture to celebrate the Jubilee in Hyde Park, Manchester.  We made it in one day and everything is made from recycled materials (except for cable ties, brown tape and plastic tags).

The milk cartons mostly came from The Flying Teapot Cafe at Woodend Mill and the bottles from New Charter Housing Association.  A few of the group worked all day on the sculpture with others dropping in and out throughout the day.

Here’s the finished Queen after we had a mini-coronation…
