    Shed Features

    The Piano Raft has been built from locally salvaged and donated materials gathered along a 6 year journey upon the Liverpool & Leeds canal. Initially built for the Liverpool Biennial 2009. Artist Ben Parry envisaged.. A Semi-post apocalyptic environment where Britain was flooded and people had to take to the canals in order to transport food & trade much like it used to be.Departing from Liverpool, no engine, rope in hand, along the towpath. Ben Cummins has manually pulled the evolving structure upon a mission to deliver a piano to London. The shed has unfolded into a surreal castle shaped by materials found upon his journey through Lancashire and Yorkshire. Each section of the build has a story and person behind it. The Piano Raft is currently moored in Leeds and functions as a floating centre of excellence for Yoga, drawing, sonic art and Mushroom Mycelium workshops.
