Visual artist needed

Kitty’s Launderette are looking for a local artist to help brighten up the outside of our community launderette. We have two large metal shutters which are currently unpainted and a bit drab. 

We would love something that celebrates our values of creativity, community, and care for the environment. However, we are open to any proposed artwork and are happy to be surprised! 

To fee for the commission, inclusive of materials is £1500 and will take place in spring 2021.

Please send us 100 words about your idea and either a pencil or digital sketch of your proposed design or artwork. Plus 2 images of your previous work. 

Email to 
before the deadline for proposals 5pm Friday 19th February. 

The measurements for the shutters are:

Launderette Shutter: 3.4 x 2.4 meters
Other Shutter: 2.4 x 2.2 meters
(larger lenths being the widths)

Here are some pictures of the shutters and the front of our launderette…

Please note the temporary window coverings above will be being replaced by windows this spring also.
