Art Students Feature In 'Mills, Machines and Memories' Film

6 October 2017



Art students are featured in a film 'Mills, Machines and Memories' which celebrates Mansfield's textile indudustry.  Filmed by John Slemensek the film illustrates the collaborative art work that was on display in the Academy Reception during the first few weeks of September and was shown at the ODEON cinema in Mansfield.

During the after school workshops, students were taught how to use image transfer processes onto fabric, how to incorporate stitch, crochet and collage by local artist Clare Taylor.  The work produced was part of a ‘Made in Mansfield’ project celebrating Mansfield’s heritage in the textiles industries.

The art work created is now on permanent display at Mansfield Museum.
