As part of a wider ‘Arts & Heritage in the Public Realm’ strategy, a series of arts proposals have been commissioned by Derby Silk Mill linked to its ongoing Re:imagine programme, to become a new Museum of Making.
Artist and maker Andy Plant has recently been commissioned to undertake a short in-house residency to explore a potential time-based work, including links to Smith of Derby and related clock-making collections held within the Silk Mill.
As part of this initial micro commission, Andy and Arts Consultant Ian Banks visited our works on Friday 10th March to introduce the potential project concept. We also gave a detailed tour of our works to show our clock-making projects at first hand.
