As ever our local Ancoats Older residents are busy working towards their own contemporary art stall for this year’s Northern Art Carbooty. Residents and the local Knitting group (Many Hands) from Victoria Square Housing Building are busy working away with project artist Sally Gilford and assistant Juliet Davies, to create new textile based works which celebrate all things heritage and environment to do with the Ancoats conservation area. They will be selling their final products along as part of a community stall for the Ancoats based Northern Art Carbooty on Sun 30th August, 1 Primrose Street, 12-5pm!
And tomorrow see’s one of our NAC curator’s Liz Wewiora also leading a workshop with the residents to capture photographs and cyanotypes of the surrounding areas to use for the final screen printed works!
You can see one of the wonderful tester screen print patterns above from their very first session!
