Blackburn’s project is coming to an end…

Lucy is finishing in Blackburn this week after a very succesful four weeks in Blackburn. She has had around a 100 book recommendations, numerous prints, many conversations and delivered a number of book binding workshops. She will now go away and create an archive of the information she has collected…

Blackburn Open Shop…

We have finally confirmed the shop we will be using in Blackburn. From next Wednesday Lucy May Schofield will be in residence at 11 Fleming Square, between the hairdressers and Exchange Coffee Company.

Lucy came to do some more research at the museum yesterday and now has more inspiration than she knows what to do with! Have a look at the dates she will be in the shop http://blackburnbookarchive.blogspot.com/

Blackburn Book Archive…

As NWSA Open Shop Project ends, Blackburn’s begins. Starting on the 19th of July for four weeks, Lucy May Schofield will be working with Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery to produce a book archive for Blackburn. Inspired by the Hart collection of books at the museum and the archives of the recently closed down Star Paper Mill, Lucy will use a variety of methods to produce an archive of what the community of Blackburn are reading in the summer of 2010. More details soon on the project blog http://blackburnbookarchive.blogspot.com/

After a very productive planning meeting with Lucy May Schofield for the Blackburn project, that involved visiting local libraries, rummaging through the collections and trying to gain access to the closed Star Paper Mill, we are pleased to announce project dates. Lucy will be in residence in the shop from the 19th of July to the 15th of August. A full timetable of what she will be doing and when will be posted nearer to the time, as will a project blog.
