Bug fun

Saltaire Arts Trail 2016 - The Butterfly Rooms on Saltaire's Gordon Terrace is a gift shop full of gorgeous, beautifully designed items: baby clothes, toys, homeware and cards. Upstairs a number of local artists have studio and gallery space. This cardboard model village in one of the rooms caught my eye. It's actually a piece designed to enthral children, with nifty little 'bugs' made from fibre tip pens that were somehow magically motorised and zipped about the streets making coloured trails. Ingenious.


  1. It all looks very "northern industrial". I like the idea of those pens.

  2. Hi Jenny - very ingenious ... how fascinating to see ... and educative for all ages - us included! Cheers Hilary
