A Sense Of Place began as a series of events, with a minimal carbon footprint, based in the Bradford district. They were, and continue be, events that bring people, artists, and our local environment together for an experience that will stay long in the mind.

Supported by a testing and development grant from Bradford Producing Hub, we ran 3 events over a 12 months period starting in 2022.

Since then A Sense Of Place continues and ad hoc project, working on opportunities as they arise.

Back in 2022/23 the project was a collaboration between 5 Bingley based artists:

The Artists

David Carpenter


David has a background in community radio and creates music as The Argent Grub often using found sounds, and loud guitars.

Hannah Lamb


Hannah Lamb is a textile artist, lecturer and author, based at her home studio in Bingley, West Yorkshire. Her creative practice focusses on recording a sense of place through careful observation and material investigation. She works with a range of textile processes, including stitch, print and fabric manipulation, creating textile artworks from an intimate scale to larger installation works.

An interest in textile archives and local textile industry has led to recent research projects and exhibitions with Salts Mill, Bradford Textile Archive, Sunny Bank Mills and Bradford School of Art. Hannah's first solo book, Poetic Cloth; Creating Meaning in Textile Art, was published by Batsford (2019). Hannah Lamb gained a BA (Hons.) Embroidery (2001) and MA Textiles (2010) from Manchester Metropolitan University. She has lectured in embroidery and design at Bradford School of Art (Bradford College) since 2004, where she is currently Programme Leader for Textiles. Hannah exhibits nationally and internationally and is an exhibiting member of the 62 Group of Textile Artists.

Lukas Hornby


Lukas performs solo drone, turntable, and sampled percussion as GRST. He began 2022 with a number of firsts, self-releasing his debut EP on bandcamp and his first physical release on a compilation of drone with label Difficult Art and Music. Musically he likes to explore textures, long-form narratives, and esoteric synthesis.

Lukas also DJs around the world (or virtually at least) as DJ %username% and much of his performance both live and as DJ is has an audio-visual element, making extensive use of lo-fi and bleeding edge digital techniques for live video production including Machine Learning and GANs.

Lukas works on the online program for CAMP, a residency program from the Pyrnenees and sister project to FUSE, the gallery and performance space he manages in Bradford.

Nicolor Storr


Yorkshire based illustrator.

Stu Bannister


Stu has performed indoors and outdoors around Leeds/Bradford and the UK for 20-odd years, once as a member of the prog-punk band Quack QUack and since as a solo noise-maker and collaborator. Recent projects have included performing noisy aquatic sounds aboard Ben Cummins’ Piano Raft as it descended the FIve Rise Locks, contributing to the Folklore Tapes Compilations, and a duo with guitarist Dean McPhee called Rederator.
