Moakes' work often has a playful quality. Wigan Warp and Weft
is constructed from plate steel. It changes as you walk around
it, being tall elegant curves from some viewpoints and more
angular from others. The interweaving shapes, a reference to
Wigan's textile heritage, open out at the top to form a "W"
down the hill on Millgate and this will lead you onto
the main pedestrianised shopping street, Standishgate.
Turn right and go down the hill. Cross at the main junction
and continue along Standishgate until you reach the junction
with Powell Street. Here, at the boundary of the town
centre, you will find the Wigan Warp and Weft.
