MUSIC from this piano will be all the more sweet thanks to the handiwork of textile artist Gemma Nemer.

The instrument has been decked out with doilies and given a floral theme as part of Rotherham’s Urban Piano Project.

Members of the public have also been asked to customise pianos placed in shops and art galleries in the town - and to take up the chance to tickle the ivories.

The project was inspired by the donation of a piano from Ben Kealey, of rock band Kasabian, to the new Gallery@Riverside.
