Felt is a new, large-scale, site-responsive installation in the dramatic roof space at Salts Mill, Saltaire, created by Claire Tindale. Wool is used as the central material to explore the industrial heritage of the mill, and surrounding village, in order to create the artwork.
At the heart of the installation, occupying the industrial scale of the temporary gallery space, is a village of hundreds of small hand-crafted, needle-felted houses. Contributing to the collective growth and development of the model village, the houses created by groups of workshop participants, from the local area, Manchester and further afield, sit alongside those created by the artist.
Responding to the historic and contemporary contexts of the mill and village, Felt explores the relationship between industry and home, the communities that develop and the supportive, symbiotic relationship that results.

Artists Claire Tindale, Dan Hays and Jane Lawson explore the opportunities and challenges that arise as we adapt to new technological formats for storing and sharing information. As digitisation projects strive to scan and transcribe as much data as possible, what is the role of books and libraries?
