Mosaics

The first of the Shepherdess Walk mosaics, called History in the Making, was designed by artist Tessa Hunkin to celebrate life in Hackney’s parks during the Olympic summer.

It was assembled by members of the local community and clients from a drug and alcohol outreach programme in collaboration the Council, Hackney Drug and Alcohol Action Team and Lifeline.

The mosaic was so popular that another piece was designed and installed to celebrate the sheep and shepherdesses who gave the park its name.

Dogs
