2024 Festival Dates: 6 & 7 July

Art in Manufacturing / Legacy Exhibition

“There is art at play in Lancashire’s countless, largely invisible factories: hundreds of people embark each day on creative tasks, working with remarkable attention to detail to produce the beautiful, the delicious and the complex, from the most delicate to the most durable products on earth.”

The first season of Art in Manufacturing took us on an incredible journey through the hidden world of Lancashire’s manufacturers, resulting in works of great scale, ambition and heart. Relive the best moments here with the Art in Manufacturing Legacy Exhibition, featuring pieces from the original project and a series of commissioned films telling the narrative of making, from the kitchen table to the factory floor.

Free to attend, the exhibition runs from SATURDAY 12TH MAY 2018 – SATURDAY 20TH AUGUST 2018 in Blackburn Museum, Visit their website for here and browse last year’s project in our Art in Manufacturing Season One page.
