Florence Mine Commission
Florence Mine, Egremont, West Cumbria (2011) was the last working iron ore mine in Europe. The old mine is in the process of being developed as a community arts space for West Cumbria, bringing new life to this inspiring site of industrial history.
Rachel Kelly has been commissioned to design printed textiles for upholstery and surface decoration at The Florence Mine. The inspiration for the designs were sourced from 100-year-old hand drawn maps and plans stored at the mine and will be developed with members of the local Egremont community through artist led workshops.
