The Mill Next Door & Meet the Artist

The Mill Next Door & Meet the Artist

Globe Gallery is proud to present a one-woman show by local artist Sylvi Gibbs. Her imaginative work captures her response to changes in the Colne Valley. Join her for the launch of her exhition on Saturday 13th January between 11am and 4pm.

The artist lived next door to a working mill in Slaithwaite for over 30 years. Owned by Schofield and Smith’s Ltd, the mill was internationally famous for the production of top-quality worsted cloth.

When it closed, Sylvi retrieved discarded cloth and small bits of wood and metal from the abandoned site. These she used to tell her story of “the mill next door”, the moorlands and hills that surrounded it, and the beautiful cloth itself.

She admits to being “A bit obsessed by it”.

We hope you enjoy it.
