The last Tay Spinners at Verdant Works #dundeewestend

It was a pleasure recently to meet Andrew Cronshaw whose exhibition "The last Tay Spinners" is currently taking place at Verdant Works.

The exhibition documents one of the last days of jute spinning at Tay Spinners in Dundee before closure in 1998. 

Using colour and black and white photographs, 27 people are shown at work in the mill.    The pictures record the processing of raw jute into finished yarn. 

The exhibition also includes artworks created during lockdown based on the photographs.

Well worth a visit - admission free!
