Window Animations | Workers of the Roundhouse

Workers of the Roundhouse is a playful look at some of the professions who were based at the Roundhouse (then known as Corporation Wharf) who were responsible for keeping the ‘The City of 1000 Trades’ ticking over.  

For this animated installation at the Roundhouse, Pickle Illustration created characterful illustrations focusing on four professions -lamplighters, stone breakers, blacksmiths and night soil workers. Working with animator Rosa Kennedy, Pickle’s illustrations have been brought to life, producing a snapshot of their daily lives. 

Against the backdrop of a historic site, these colourful animations provide a dynamic and engaging display for passers-by, showcasing the Roundhouse in a new way, and celebrating the cultural heritage that comes with it.

Visit the towpath outside the Roundhouse between 19:30 and 22:30 to see the animations. Find more information and a shorter, online version of the video here.
