In an exciting collaboration with the fantastic National Festival of Making, celebrating the UK making industry, comes the first of three special episodes covering Art in Manufacturing season 2.
Crossing seven of the UK's most adventurous artists with the machinery of Lancashire's premier industrialists, Im first heading to Darwen's Ritherdon, where artist and sculpture maker Nicola Ellis is collaborating with the staff, inspired by the rich heritage and responding to the workplace environment to create a bespoke artwork in a company with a truly unique history approaching 125 years.
I'll never look at a place of industry in the same way and I hope you won't too!
