Over the summer Strange Cargo arts company have been hard at work in World Museum Liverpool’s lower horseshoe gallery. This grand space with its high ceilings is the perfect space for one of the things they do best, which is making giants.

Their have been a number of giant-building workshops over the summer. Now the company are finishing off a 15 foot tall Liverpool giant, which will lead the city’s 800th birthday pageant on Tuesday 28 August. You can get a first look at their creation at 1pm on Bank Holiday Monday (27 August) when the giant will be named in a special ceremony in St John’s Gardens, opposite World Museum Liverpool.

Have a look at a Flickr slideshow of photos from today’s giant building workshop to see how some of Strange Cargo’s creations are shaping up.
