Capturing Chances


Wednesbury Museum and Art Gallery

14th November, 12am-4pm.

Did you work for Chance Brothers in Smethwick, or know someone who did? Maybe you just love their glass and have some cherished pieces you would like to show? Or have photographs that captured life at the site?

If so, join artist Leanne O'Connor in a collecting and sharing day. The session is based around recording memories and stories and the opportunity for you to have your own studio-style portrait with your glass and related ephemera. The call-out is open to anyone and it would be particularly wonderful If we could hear from past chance workers and regional glass enthusiasts.

Capturing Chances is completely free!

This session is part of Leanne’s bursary artist commission as part of the Living Memory Project.

If you have any questions around this event, please contact Leanne via email or the Living Memory Project
