A large-scale woven and printed cloth, made in Bradford and inspired by site visits to lost textile mills. Drawing on a deep respect for the skill, experience and dexterous hands of textile workers, the cloth combines motifs from mill buildings and archive imagery. An important part of the project is bringing the cloth to the centre of former textile communities and photographing it at lost mill sites.

Created with the support of Bradford School of Art, Bradford College.

This exhibition was commissioned by 509 Arts and Saltaire Inspired in partnership with Bradford District Museums and Galleries as part of Lost Mills and Ghost Mansions.

Over the past nine months, 509 Arts and Bradford Community Broadcasting have been collecting the memories of Bradford’s older mill workers to map the city’s late 20th century textile heritage and amplify the voices of its diverse communities. The Lost Mills and Ghost Mansions team has interviewed over 70 mill workers from many different backgrounds to ensure Bradford’s world-class textile industry and architecture is remembered through an accessible database of stories, photographs, maps and preserved heritage.


509 Arts is an award-winning Bradford-based company with more than ten years’ experience of making and shaping work with local communities.
