My friend Natalie is part of an art exhibition at Stanley Mill this weekend along with some of her classmates. Wanting to support Natalie, we grabbed a couple of ASVA passes from Rod’s work and headed up the road to Stanley, north of Perth.
Our ASVA passes got us free entry to Stanley Mill, an old cotton mill. I find mills very interesting, perhaps down to my love of yarn and textiles. This Mill had fallen into disrepair, but Historic Scotland have done a great job in bringing the building back to life.
We met a lady who used to work in the mill as a young girl and she really made the visit for me. She showed us some photos and told a few stories. It was a real insight into life in the mill. Fascinating.
The art exhibition that Natalie was part of was dotted throughout the mill. There were a few pieces that caught my eye.
Natalie’s art was a performance installation and unfortunately on a break when we visited but we did get to see Natalie and hand over a sugary treat to see her through the day.
Looking forward to seeing Natalie’s next exhibition … her degree show.
