Project Alleycat unveil their new mosaic
The Cheshire Cat is a character from Alice in Wonderland. In the book, the cat appears and then disappears leaving only its grin.
The mosaic portrays the whole cat, then a series of grins, interwoven by a quotation from the book:
“Well! I’ve often seen a cat without a grin,’ thought Alice ‘but a grin without a cat! It’s the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!”
The Cat joins a series of unique works of art decorating the many alleys of Tewkesbury, including a copy of the “The Alleys & Courts of Tewkesbury” map, also in Warder’s Alley.
- The tiles were produced by pupils from Alderman Knight School, Tewkesbury.
- Eastnor Pottery designed the work, and fired the tiles.
- The project was sponsored by “Can Do”, Leonard Cheshire Disability.
- Alleycat received assistance for this work from Bookworm, Tewkesbury & M&Co Ltd
- Project Alleycat, a community group, exists to promote interest in, and revitalise the historic alleyways of Tewkesbury.
