Room and Power Exhibition

Islington Mill has produced a series of heritage events to explore our history and exhibit creative responses to social research. The next in our series is entitled ‘Room and Power‘.

This work is made possible with thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

‘Room and Power’ has been produced by the textile designers and artists Jessie Stringer-Fewtrill and Natalie Linney. They are both members of Salford Makers, a collective of artists and designers based in Islington Mill, and founders of Salford Slow Fashion CIC.

From cotton to raincoats, steam engines to M3 Industries, ‘Room and Power’ has researched the history of occupation and collaboration at the mill over its 200 year history.

This exhibit will show never before seen textile pieces which tell the story of Islington Mill’s timeline from 1823 to the present day.

Opening times:

May 12th: 6pm – 8pm
May 13th: 14th, 15th 12pm – 4pm
