Rock out 2020

This year, we won’t be doing our usual wrap up and review of the year. Instead, as 2020 draws to a close, let’s see it off with a bang. For everyone who wants to relive their heady days spent in the warm embrace of the foundry at SSW, we share with you Eden’s classic and improved Foundry Anthems*.

If this isn’t enough to get you through the last few weeks of the year, we highly recommend the new album by Olid Nordhausen**, BLOODIRON, the hotly anticipated sequel to FOUNDRYSOUNDS and Massive Wolf Towel. It is undoubtedly the ideal Christmas present for your iron pouring, fire-loving significant other.

Olid has kindly shared a discount code for our foundry fans: SSW

And as we say a grateful farewell to 2020 there is lots to look forward to in 2021, including continuing our BEPART project by hosting the first Assembly at SSW and kicking off Fieldworks with Myvillages and Jack Tan. We also look forward to progress with our Capital Development plans now we have planning permission (yay!) and most excitingly, the potential for real-life connections, visits and hugs with artists near and far.

Thanks to everyone who has supported, worked and shared moments with us this year.

Now to rock out and rock on into 2021!
