Six primary schools, the most local to the Transport Interchange were picked to work with Hilary Cartmel to help inform the content of the panels for the referbished bus station.
During these workshops the schools went out drawing around the town, making portraits of buildings, trees, the market, the fountains, landscape. They drew the buses, they drew themselves and they drew each other. Whilst they worked, they also talked and these conversations led tofurther research for the screens depicting the industries of the area.
An enormous amount of artwork was produced during these sessions. Some schools were stronger than others, some more productive. Most of the 27 screens have a mixture of work from all six primary schools. A huge amount of work could not be included, the editing out of pictures for the final design was a difficult and ruthless process.

Most of the steelwork images is translated directly from the student's work.

There are 9 huge 'window' spaces that line both sides of the bus station runways. Hilary's screens (27 each measuring 4m high x 3 meters - three to a window space) replaced concrete vertical venetian blinds.
