With the intention of addressing the question of, ‘How users of public space are engaging with their environment’, the environmental group Public Works are making and giving away free bags to the traders and locals of Petticoat Lane in London. Using bits and pieces of donated fabric that they have collected, the two artists make their bags while sewing outdoors, chatting and engaging with the local visitors. The aim of the project is to encourage fun and innovative ways of making people interact with the public space around them.
