The Weymouth Deck Chair Project is part of the 2012 public art commissioning plan, which was developed especially for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Sailing Events.
The themes of architecture, beach and coast were chosen and developed by the lead artists Heather Parnell, David Mackie and Becky Adams, who then hosted workshops with members of the community and schools to design 500 unique deck chairs featuring these designs.
We thought the results are amazing and will be an awesome addition to Weymouth seafront. We haven’t seen anything even close to this anywhere else so a real winner for Weymouth.

We captured a range of photo’s of individual designs and some group shots to give you a flavour of this fantastic project. Whilst we were there taking the photographs it was really pleasing to see local people who had been involved in the designs walking through them and hearing their excitement when they found their design. We hope you like them as much as we do.
