Land and Labour, Weaving and Witches

Saturday 21st October

Cruck Barn, Pendle Heritage Centre, Colne Rd, Barrowford, Burnley BB9 6JQ


A discussion with artist, Christine Borland, in front of her installation, Projection Cloth in the evocative setting of the Cruck Barn and artists Nick Jordan and Jacob Cartwright whose installation, Larksong, can be seen at Goodshaw Chapel. Both their works focus on the tipping point between cottage industry and mechanisation in these rural settings in the 17th and 18th centuries as people moved from the land and home into factories.

To hear more about Christine’s work, listen to Episode 7 of the Cloth Cultures podcast, Season 3.

Chaired by Laurie Peake, Artistic Director of BTB23.

This event is part of the Conversations in Creativity series in collaboration with Creative Lancashire.

Please use the Barrowford Road entrance to the barn rather than passing through the Visitors Centre and Garden.
