Fabric Baobab Tree & Other Southbank Centre Artworks

Fabric Baobab Tree
There's a really cool fabric Baobab tree outside the Southbank Centre in London.  It's made from rings of  fabric from around the globe.  Check out the  bobbins and scissors in it's branches ...

Bobbins & scissors in the branches
At 15 metres tall it's part of the Festival of the World and  celebrates global creativity & diversity.

Designed and built by Pirate Technics, it has contributions from Masters students in Textile Design at Chelsea College of Art & Design.
Fabric Rings

The fabric rings have a thick gloopy coating on which I guess makes them weatherproof ...

Apart from the tree there's a lot of other stuff to take a look at.

Look up for this one!
