German u- boat . I was asked to install this on Harwich beach to commemorate a 100 years since the end of the 1st world war when 168 German U-boats surrendered on Harwich beach.
I worked in local schools to create some of the parts such as the anchor, chains, rope and propeller. Some members of the public and friends came along to help weave.

 

Willow whale for the arts Festival 2017 on Harwich Beach. on The Saturday when it was nearly finished I put the plastic bags in there for peoples awareness of the affects of plastic pollution on the wildlife which is particularly bad I the sea. The whale was 15 meters long and as the tide came in and moved it around for its slow disintegration the local school children would come along on their way home from school and repair it, its now replaced by the German U-boat.
