MONSTERS are set to take over Carlisle city centre as part of an exciting new community arts project.

Artist and organiser Pui Lee, from the award-winning West Walls Studios, is creating a colourful monster trail around the city.

The 22-year-old, who is passionate about taking art out of the studio and into the wider community, said the idea is to get children of all ages to design their own creatures.

A selection of these monsters will then pop up across Carlisle in the form of stickers and cardboard cut-outs.

Maps of where they are placed will be handed out so families can go out monster-hunting in the city.

Pui said: “It is meant to be a bit of light-hearted fun, which I hope everyone can take part in and enjoy.”

She has already been working with youngsters from Belle Vue Junior School and is urging other residents, of any age, to submit their own artwork.

Monsters must be drawn on white A4 paper, coloured in and have their own unique name. The best designs will be recreated for the monster hunt but all entries will be shown at a public exhibition later in the year.

Entries can be posted to: Pui Lee, West Walls Studios, Unit 53, Carlisle Enterprise Centre, Carlisle, Cumbria, CA2 5BB. Pui will also be holding further workshops in Carlisle over the next few weeks.

As long as they are not all the same I don't mind how many there are
