Art in Manufacturing: Nicola Ellis

During this period in the factory setting, Ellis observes, participates in, and at times disrupts the ecosystem of the factory while working alongside and in collaboration with the Ritherdon workforce.


The success of the residency led to a further two-year Arts Council England funded placement, Return to Ritherdon which resulted in an invitation from the factory to remain in placement indefinitely.

The works to be presented by Ellis at the National Festival of Making 2022 were created between 2019-2021, the period since the initial Art in Manufacturing residency of 2018.
