Description

Art in Manufacturing Season 3: Artist Talks

in association with Creative Lancashire.

Art in Manufacturing (AIM) is a programme co-commissioned by The National Festival of Making and Super Slow Way.

AIM pairs artists and makers with manufacturers and domestic artisans, giving the artists access to specialist machinery and heritage craft techniques, to create work that forms an integral part of the National Festival of Making.

Over the festival weekend, we offer opportunities to hear more about the works created for the 2019 AIM showcase. Introduced by Jamie Holman, Non-Executive Director of National Festival of Making, the artists will each give a short talk about their work, in-situ at their festival exhibition spaces.

This year's AIM Season 3 artists are Amy Pennington, Anna Ray, Daksha Patel, Liz Wilson and Dan Edwards.
