PRINTWORKS


Commissioned as part of Electric Glen 2016 and produced by East Renfrewshire Council, in additional collaboration with Light RefreshmentPrintworks was a 40 metre long audio visual projection shown in Rouken Glen Park, and reflected on the creative and commercial history of the area, which was once home to Thornliebank Printworks. The firm was famed for the vibrancy and durability of its dyes and the quality of its print, which was sold all over the world for the greater part of the 19th century. Designs from the 1814 sample book were used to inform the development of new patterns for the artwork.
