Our mural was designed by young people from South Bristol with the help of local artist Katharina Nyilas. It celebrates Bristol’s Harbour Master and the amazing work that they do all year round. The Harbour Master’s team takes care of Bristol’s waterways from Netham Lock to Cumberland Basin.
We are inviting our visitors and local community to help us paint the mural over Docks Heritage Weekend, 1&2 October, 11am – 5pm and over October half term. The canvas for our mural is the shipping container that houses the spill kit. The spill kit is used by the Harbour Master’s team in emergencies to clean up oil and petrol from the harbour.
UPDATE November 2016: The mural has now been completed thanks to the amazing volunteers and visitors to Underfall Yard Visitor Centre. Pop down to the yard to see the finished thing!
