In 1833, six agricultural labourers took an oath and stood up against injustice. Nearly 200 years later, the legacy of the Tolpuddle Martyrs can still be felt as their story continues to inspire people. Award-winning artist Jason Wilsher-Mills has been influenced by the story of the Tolpuddle Martyrs, which can be seen in his work.
Jason Wilsher-Mills is a UK-based disabled digital artist. He uses digital media and 3D printing to create large artworks about his disability, childhood memories, popular culture and social history. He has produced large scale pieces for the Houses of Parliament and Tate Exchange.
For the first time, we will be exhibiting all of Shire Hall’s pieces of Jason’s work together.
This will include:
-The Tolpuddle Martyrs Remixed AR experience
-Jason vs the System, a new ground-breaking VR experience
-The Parliament Banner
and for a limited time…
-The Tolpuddle Sheep Argonaut
Admission to ‘The Tolpuddle Legacy’ is included with a museum ticket.
