Fauldhouse Mining Tribute Public Art Project
For the last couple of years, Fauldhouse and Breich Valley Community Development Trust have been working with local residents to try to create a piece of artwork that will celebrate the rich tradition of the mining community in Fauldhouse.
After a great deal of hard work everything is now in place to deliver the project. We are delighted to have now commissioned artists Ailsa Magnus and Billy Caulfield to undertake the Fauldhouse Mining Tribute Sculpture Project.
They have been visiting various community groups introducing themselves and raising awareness of the project and have spent time gathering reference material and speaking to key members of the community as part of their research.
Ailsa has 25 years experience delivering similar projects throughout the UK. Billy is a multi-media artist and has worked on numerous projects throughout Scotland. Their combined skills and knowledge will bring something unique and memorable to Fauldhouse.
They have delivered a series of creative workshops to engage with the community. Through consultation with ex-miners and their families they intend to create a lasting legacy for the community of Fauldhouse.
The aim is that the completed artwork will be on the Village Green by the end of the year.
If you have a connection to mining, worked in mining or had a family member who was involved, the artists would love to hear your story. Please contact 07710 510 400, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
