Sheffield City of Makers

Richard Bartle in Residence in Turkey

Posted on 02.05.2018

Richard Bartle was awarded a Project Award in the recent Making Ways Open Call for his project ‘Wanderings of the Black Pen’. This project will see Richard create a series of miniature sculptures and paintings that engage with the remaining work of Siyah Kalem – a 14th Century artist, miniaturist and story-teller with whom Richard has been fascinated since 2015.

This will lead to an exhibition and artist talk in Istanbul in June and a series of events at Museums Sheffield later in the year.
