The Mill Next Door
Artist Sylvi Gibbs lives right next door to the former Schofield and Smith’s worsted mill in Slaithwaite, which one night spectacularly burnt down. By chance during the clearance operation Sylvi managed to salvage some of their advertising material and sample fabrics. This film tells a little of the story of the firm, but also how she now uses that material to create new artworks.
