This comes as part of the Early Years project for the City of Culture 2017 called ‘The Sixteen Thousand’, with this representing the 16,000 0-5 year olds in the city.

Wienerberger will dry and fire the sculpted bricks at it’s roof tile factory in Broomfleet before they are installed in Hull city centre and displayed from Monday 2nd October until Sunday 5th November.

It has been a pleasure encouraging the children to work with these materials in this way fro, such an early age, allowing them to express themselves to celebrate the City of Culture in Hull.”
