Auckland Project Mining Art Gallery approached Victoria with a list of miners slang and imagery to create a bespoke range for their new shop. Durham Coal Miners would use 'pitmatic' language both above and below ground. A combination of words and local dialect that was first noted in 1870's, it is now fast disappearing with the closure of the North East Coalfield, however there are a few words that have found there was into our everyday conversations.
Victoria interjected bold images alongside the miners slang to create a fun and educational design. Each product also came with co-ordinated packaging which was on brand to fit in with the other offerings at the Auckland Project gift shop.
Available on a tea towel, print, set of 4 coasters, mug, greeting card and magnet.
