The Pilgrimage Project

The main project of my final year of university, this combined drawing, song writing, printing and making garments under one theme, an imagined trip to the Outer Hebrides. The project started with conversations with my dad about the trip that he did around Northern Scotland in the summer of 1991. His stories and memories, as well as those of my mum and two other friends who accompanied him, inspired the works; each piece reflecting vague memories and imagined places. Shown here are a selection of outcomes, they are documented more extensively under their individual headings: Battledress, Escapade, Pilgrimage EP, Memory Quilt, Broadside, Song Cards, and Pilgrimage Drawings.
