Dock Art is a pop-up shop that will see artists create a range of works from traditional prints and one-off limited editions, to quirky items such as mugs, tea towels and bespoke t-shirts made from organic cotton.
Located in Unit 16 on The Colonnades, close to Tate Liverpool, Dock Art is the latest independent to set up shop at the dock, following the likes of Leather Satchel Co and more recently, Utility.
It is all part of the strategic reinvention of the retail and leisure offer of Albert Dock, led by the developer, Aberdeen Asset Management.
Co-founded by Katherine Caldwell and Freida McKitrick, Dock Art is the team’s latest venture, having run several pop-ups across the city centre in the last few years.
Katherine said: “This is a dream location for us. It is without doubt one of Liverpool’s most iconic sites – with the heritage, attractions, architecture and events, and we are absolutely honoured to set up a business here.”
Aberdeen’s Simon Moscow added: “We launched our ambitious vision for Albert Dock earlier this year, after acquiring the commercial spaces in 2016.
“Albert Dock is a truly unique location, and it is our intention to enhance the already high quality local and national restaurant and retail brands here, with new, fiercely independent, and evolving brands.
“We want people to be excited when they visit the dock – seeing and experiencing new things each time.”
