In 2019 two of the Mill’s iconic derelict spaces were demolished as part of its regeneration into creative spaces for businesses and culture.
The Finishing Room (next to the Gallery) played host to pop up theatre, comedy and music by Trouble at Mill, was an exhibition space for some amazing artists, a market place for the Gallery and even a wedding venue.
The Weaving Shed was home to (we say)to the painting of the world’s largest carrot and was transformed in 2015 into a graffiti installation by over 40 street artists; including recently SEN 1.
For well over 100 years both buildings were also the working homes of the weavers, menders, spinners and designers of Edwin Woodhouse cloth; sold across the world but made in Leeds. Many of those workers and their families still live in the local community.
From 20th – 27th May 2017Sunny Bank Mills celebrated those spaces in Loom; a festival of art, words, music and comedy.
Clocking Off in the Top Store celebrated those spaces and the history of the mill with an exhibition by some of the artists who created work inspired by these spaces.
Artists: Des Pattison, Brisbane Taylor, Hannah Lamb, Jane Fielder, Pat Harvey, Pete Harvey, Jane Kay, Jane Walkley, Penny Hayes, Mel Davies, Clare Lane, Lorna Jewitt, Nancy Haslam Chance, Oonagh Corr and Hayley Mills-Styles.
