Phlegm has created this incredible installation as part of The Festival of The Mind 

The artwork may be found at Castle House, Angel Street, Sheffield.  The Grade II listed building was once a huge Coop Department store, located in an area of Sheffield with a long history of market trading.

The installation is free to view and open to the public from 18th – 28th September 2014

 

History of Castle House

In 1964 Castle House was officially opened…realising the dream of the Brightside and Carbrook Co-operative, to create not just a shop, but a shopping experience that would be a gift to every housewife in Sheffield! Supported by 106,000 cooperative members, the building represented a holistic retail experience across four storeys, incorporating a food hall, clothing, furniture, flooring, offices and a restaurant.
The innovative architectural design by George S. Hay was influenced by American department store design.   A spiral staircase whisked shoppers through the centre of the building, from where they could experience the myriad of products available. The architectural design was augmented by contemporary sculpture and topped-off with a view over the city.

Thank you to everyone who made me feel so welcome at yesterdays meeting.  It was a privilege, an education and most enjoyable afternoon.

Special thanks to Doreen who invited me along and who was so very patient as I muddled around taking photographs of her lace making.

I will add a link to the Sheffield Lace Makers website as soon as it is up and running…
