Urban legends and landscapes
Sunday 26 January 2014 to Sunday 18 May 2014
Salford has a far reaching history from its first recorded mention in Anglo Saxon England to the present day.
The rural landscape of Salford metamorphosed into the industrial town, the high density housing and the cotton mills and to the present day city. The Threadmill artists are each motivated by different aspects: Ordsall Hall and its paintings; Elizabethan inhabitants; the effects of World War I on the area; the modern cityscape.
Members of Threadmill Textiles present an exhibition of creative and stimulating artefacts inspired by Ordsall Hall and the wider environs of Salford using a profusion of tactile and colourful techniques.
