Yesterday we met the wonderful Mark Mcleish- one of Britain’s most exciting art jewellers - to talk about his new exhibition “It Is Never What You Did or Didn’t Do” at The Weavers Factory this Autumn. We’re really excited to be working with Mark and we know you’re going to LOVE every one of the 365 brooches he’ll be exhibiting.

And thanks to Lisa Taylor who decided to photobomb us on her way to try on wedding dresses 👰 😂

WOW… what a weekend!!! A huge thanks to every single one of you who came to the launch of Anthony Marn’s new exhibition “Seasons in the Sun” here at the Weavers Factory.

It was our busiest ever Sunday, and so lovely to see the sunshine bringing everyone out, #uppermill was absolutely buzzing.

And thank you to Anthony Marn Art for patiently taking the time to talk to everyone and explain what the exhibition is really about. We don’t talk too much on here about the meaning of behind the exhibition because it’s something you need to see in person to truly understand. And we know from all of your reactions what a moving experience it really is.

So if you didn’t get over to see the show this weekend then we’re open right through the #easterholidays including #goodfriday and #eastermonday - and Anthony’s show is on until May 15th.

Lots of love,

Julian, Nigel & Hayley ❤️

WE’RE OPEN!!!

Anthony Marn’s brilliant new exhibition “Seasons in the Sun” opened this morning and it’s all about growing up in the 1970s.

It’s also a lovely sunny day here in #saddleworth so come along to the Weavers Factory in Uppermill and have a look at Anthony’s luminous new work

We’ve finished hanging our new exhibition and it’s looking AMAZING!!! But the show you’ll see is not the one we’d originally planned, and that’s what so exciting about working so closely with artists.

Last summer we sat in the gallery office with Anthony Marn and agreed a concept for his new show, he then went away for 6-months and worked on it. Then mid-way through the process he completely changed direction and a whole new body of work emerged.

And that body of work, a nostalgic, romantic, yet deeply poignant portrayal of growing up in 1970s #manchester will be on display from tomorrow here at the Weavers Factory.

We’re immensely proud of the work we’ve done with Anthony Marn Art - he has created 30 new paintings and we hope each of you will see something in them that deeply resonates with your past.

Julian, Nigel & Hayley

🌱 NEW IN TODAY - VEGAN SOAPS 🌱

We’ve just had a big delivery of our brand new vegan soap on a rope from the lovely guys at #kleen - We have four different types of cold-processed #vegansoap on a rope, made from high quality, natural ingredients with packaging that is recycled, and recyclable.

https://www.weaversfactory.co.uk/vegansaddleworth

The soaps are handmade in small batches and cured for a minimum of 6 weeks, for a hard, long-lasting bar and a beautiful creamy lather.

These #soapbars help you reduce the use of plastic in your home - ensuring that no soap is unused through a centered cotton rope - giving you a long-lasting, waste-free natural product.

Oh, and if you fancy a little exfoliate we’ve got a whole batch of scrubbers to go with them 😊

Lots of you have asked about Julian’s latest piece “Power to the People” after seeing at the Astley Cheetham Gallery. Julian and three other artists (Sarah Hardacre, MayWildStudio and Stephen Marland) were commissioned to make artwork that celebrated the built environment of Tameside. Julian chose to draw #hartsheadpike in Mossley with #manchestercitycentre and the #cheshireplain beyond. Here are the words he wrote to accompany his piece:

“Walking on Hartshead Pike one morning I was struck at how the #manchesterskyline and its new skyscrapers are beginning to loom over every part of Tameside. I watched how the electricity pylons climbed over the hills westward towards Manchester and thought about how the suburbs were powering the city centre. And not just with electricity but with people too - all of us are intrinsically linked to Manchester - our power, our hands, our bodies and our minds built the city centre. It may be Britain’s most exciting city, but it’s nothing without the people that surround it. We’re the power. The power to the people.”

Thanks to everyone who came to the Astley Cheetham gallery this evening to see the #intameside exhibition and the reveal of Julian’s newest work “Power to the People”, an XXL digital artwork depicting the towns of Tameside, the skyline of #manchester and the power that makes the city work.

Julian’s painting sits alongside eight new collages by the curator Sarah Hardacre (who worked tirelessly to make the show happen) plus the brilliant #modernmooch Stephen Marland and the lovely #delph artists MayWildStudio
