“Iconic Artists in Iconic Places” is a collaborative project launched by Creative Scotland and Museums Galleries Scotland as part of 2012’s Year of Creative Scotland celebrations.
As part of the project, National Mining Museum Scotland obtained funding to engage artist Claire Lamond to create an animated film in response to the Lady Victoria Colliery and the Museum’s collections and people. The result was Seams and Embers, which can currently be seen in the Black Diamond Theatre at the Museum, along with the Seams in the Dark exhibition, which explores Claire’s creative process.
The Making of “Seams and Embers”
This film gives an additional insight into that process as Claire talks us through the Making of Seams and Embers.
Animation Workshops at NMMS
As well as creating her own film, Claire ran three workshops for young people in Midlothian. She worked with students from Beeslack High School, Penicuik High School and Programme for Alternative Vocational Education. This film showcases the work the students produced.
