KILN's Design 

KILN features large black and white photographs by Derek Bishton, Brian Homer and John Reardon, which featured in the exhibition Handsworth Self-portrait: 40 Years On.

KILN has been created with 2G Design and Build as part of a wider, ongoing redevelopment capital project, which began in 2018. From the height of the table tops, provided by Foresso, a local company specialising in sustainable surfaces, through to space for parents with buggies and lighting for visibility, KILN's design is ethically-conscious and accessibility-focused.

KILN is supported by Arts Council England (ACE), players of the People’s Postcode Lottery through the Postcode Culture Trust, and The Roughly Trust. Read more about the capital project and KILN here.
