A further adaptation of the BB tables and benches made for a travelling arts workshop within a converted mobile library bus. Birch ply was used to match the interior of the bus & the tabletops are a single piece of ply rather than slatted to give a consistent working surface.
The bus will travel around the new Queen Elizabeth Park over the course of the next year and open up to stage a variety of free creative workshops from screen printing & letter press to performance & musical instrument building.
The project was part of the Olympic legacy programme commissioned by the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park as part of their Arts & Culture programme and co-funded by Arts Council England. The bus interior was designed by Studio Weave.
