By Julie Ridington and North Warwickshire and Hinckley College.

Local artist Julie Ridington has been working on a project to capture the industrial past of Hinckley and surrounding areas through the medium of sculpture and fine art. 

Julie has collected items from former factory sites, some now demolished like Sketchley Dyeworks and turned them into sculptures and other artworks. One aspect of the exhibition is hand casts of former factory workers made from plaster and crushed bricks from the site the employee worked at. This exhibition is a unique retelling of this town’s rich industrial heritage and is a collaborative project between local artists and the students of North Warwickshire and Hinckley.

Entry to the exhibition is free. If you would like to see the exhibition outside of this time please contact The Atkins Building on 01455 247070 or email: info@atkinsbuilding.co.uk
