Under the Ground with Kevin Andrew Morris
Artist Kevin Andrew Morris has spent the last month researching Carluke’s rich brick making history as part of the Make Your Way project. Please join Kevin for an Illustrated talk as he presents his findings alongside new work made during his residency.
Kevin’s research was undertaken with the support of the Carluke Parish Historical Society who will also be presenting a talk on their records as well as a short film taken at Mayfield Brickworks before it closed.The society would greatly appreciate any help in identifying the workers in the film
Make Your Way is a new project encouraging local people to walk and cyclemore whilst exploring the rich heritage of their local area. The project is focussed on the communities of Larkhall, Lanark, Carluke, Stonehouse and Glassford, and includes multiple ways for people to get involved, including activities like Dorodango mud ball challenges, walks with periscopes, art workshops, creative place name activities and creating new art installations to mark certain walking routes.
You can keep up to date with the project via the Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership website www.clydeandavonvalley.org/make-your-way, on Twitter @ClydeAvonValley or on Facebook @ClydeandAvonValley and by using #MakeYourWay
