Inspiration for Michael Farrell’s Weave came from the idea of looking at fabric under a microscope and seeing the threading moving in and out of each other in a woven pattern. The colour scheme is based on gingham with two colours woven across each other.

Influenced by the local industrial heritage and in particular the textile industry, the sculpture incorporates a stone flag floor from the Baltic Mill in Waterfoot. The peaks and troughs of the sculpture echo the local landscape and the surface of the Irwell River.
