Each pillar is made from 22x22mm pine, cunningly bolted together, standing over two metres tall. It is exactly as wide as the posters we want to put up on display.

The pillar is covered with a bright red cloth "pillow case", creating an eye-catching feature that can hold 12 large posters.

The photos below show the final testing (Monday, October 05) of our pillars; photos of the pillars in action can be seen here, for example.

Ed Foster designed and built the wooden pillars, and Carol Botha took care of the dressing. I stood around taking photos.
