Put a cog in motion

A cog for drawing

Sick of the wet weather and want something to do at half term? There’s an unusual invitation to go along to the Museum of Bath at Work on Julian Road, and try something a bit different –  have a go at drawing with cogs!

Artists Stephanie Bengry-Howell and Tracey Page, Bath School of Art alumni, are in residence at the museum. The two artists, known collectively as Object Art, have been successful in obtaining funding from the Arts Council to run their project, Industri us, in partnership with the museum.

 They have been exploring the archive and exhibits throughout January and are making artworks in response over the next few months.

The artists are running drawing activities over February half term, when the public are invited to get involved.

The activities will run on Thursday 20th February (10.30-12.30, 1.30-3.30) and Saturday 22nd February (10.30-12.30, 1.30-4pm).

Visitors can also explore the museum during these times. There will be further opportunities for the public and school groups to get involved during the Easter holiday and summer term.

Work produced by the artists and workshop participants will go on display at the museum from May to coincide with the Fringe Arts Bath festival. For more information see contact below.

The Museum of Bath at Work is open from 10.30 a.m. and there is a discount on admission for B&NES residents – the Industri-Us workshops are free.
