Somerset Art Weeks Tours of St Cuthberts Mill
|Cathy, Nicki, Kate and Kim|
Somerset Art Weeks 2017 has now come to an end. This year’s festival celebrated St Cuthberts Mill opening its doors for the first time, to run exclusive tours of our historic paper mill. We also supported the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen’s event ‘Paper Prospects’. This saw artist Jonathan Blackmore run a popular free lino cut workshop, using Somerset paper from St Cuthberts Mill.
The guided tours of St Cuthberts paper mill provided a real insight into the world of papermaking for our visitors. Many had never seen how paper is made, especially using a mould machine that dates back to 1906. A vast number of visitors were surprised to see how much goes into the process, and how ‘hands on’ everything is.
Our members of staff met some truly wonderful people, and were happy to ensure that our tours were interesting and informative. We’ve had some fantastic feedback from the local community, and beyond.
Our tour guides Cathy, Kim, Kate and Nicola have all now returned to their day jobs as the tours have come to an end. We’d like to say a big ‘Thank you’ to everyone who came to the mill.
