Upcoming Events

Friday 20 April at 7pm with Anna de Lange

Portland Works is important as the very first place where stainless steel knives were made (in 1914), and it is still in use today for metal trades. Since 2013 it has been owned by a community group and is being restored by volunteers. Anna tells its story, from its building by R F Mosley in 1878 through a gradual decline to its new future as a centre for creative craftspeople. She will bring it to life with stories, photos, and objects recovered during renovation. Tickets £5.
