Behind the Scenes at the ‘Worktown’ Exhibition

In the last week, our team has been preparing some of Falcon Hildred’s original drawings for exhibition at Ironbridge Gorge Museum in October.

Over 40 of the artist’s original drawings are going on display, including a number of drawings recording the slate landscape and industry of north Wales, where the artist has been living since 1969.

Falcon recorded many buildings in and around the industrial slate town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, including the houses on Manod Road. The drawing above shows the street at night, and is one of the artist’s more atmospheric works.

Rachael Barnwell, who has been working in partnership with colleagues at Ironbridge Gorge, measures up the exhibition frames.
The free to enter exhibition will be located in the Coalbrookdale Gallery at Ironbridge Gorge Museum, and will be open 10am – 5pm, Monday to Friday from 5th October 2012 to 20 April 2013. Please call 01952 433424 or visit for more details.
