Public art feature titled "Wigan Warp and Weft" by Adrian Moakes. Erected in 2002 it represents the inter-relationship and co-operation of past industries, and is a symbol of growth for the future.

I always get confused as to which is which. Is the warp generated by the shuttle?

Money well spent I see ???????
Never seen it before, so its too late to vote against it.

In my opinion and some would say my opinion isn't worth much, "Warp and Weft" is a complete waste of space, time and money. I'm not knocking the photography though, just the subject..

I do appreciate some of the public art sculptures around the borough - I quite like this one.
However, I'd have never have guessed what the artist intended it to represent - personally, I feel it's a bit hostile as the metal is cold, grey & seems sharp, vaguely like crossed blades?

What a load of rubbish. It would probably be worth more melted down and weighed in.

I love the very modern building at the rear probably designed by the same Architect who designed every building In Wigan.
