INNOVATIVE PROGRAMMING IN HISTORY AND THE ARTS
Slater Mill was a center of innovation in America. The “Silicon Valley” of its time, Slater Mill and its history is central to understanding the evolution of the American economy.
In addition to school programming and traditional museum tours that have been a staple of our offerings for years, Slater Mill continues to develop programming in the Fiber Arts, and other contemporary arts inspired by tradition.
Trad Arts Studio is our new center for traditional and contemporary classes and workshops in the fiber arts, arts exhibition, traditional craft, folk music, and apprenticeships in traditionally-based arts.
Using a past-as-prologue vision, Slater Mill is evolving into a more contemporary and innovative approach to sharing the historic narrative of Slater Mill, while exploring a contemporary spin on tradition.
