Exploring the history and future of a semi-derelict wing of the Callan Workhouse.

A tapestried map of the local area was built and embroidered in workshops led by LiD Architecture.
Artist Gareth Kennedy led a workshop to coat part of the Workhouse’s interior in a lime render. Each Workhouse Assembly participant made a one-legged stool, so they could sit and monitor the lime kiln.
Workhouse Assembly met with the Camphill Community in the Callan Workhouse.
We used the Workhouse as a living and working space between Wed 31th July and Sun 11th August.
