Join us for an evening of food, dancing and shopping while you experience one of Hamilton's best examples of adaptive reuse. The Imperial Cotton Factory was taken over in 2014. The Cotton Factory is a creative arts centre in the heart of lower Hamilton. Come and explore artist's studios, artisan and vintage markets, and a beautifully restored 1900s factory.
The Cotton Factory is a creative arts centre in the heart of lower Hamilton. This former cotton mill, built in 1900, is a prime example of adaptive reuse. The former site of the Imperial Cotton Company, it has since been transformed into a creative industries complex – with space for workshops, studios for artists, and office space for creative professionals. Film and television productions, photographers and special events are also drawn to the building by its unique esthetic and historical charm. As part of Digital Doors Open, learn more about this site through the video below.
