Through Nov 2019-March 2020 I produced ten new fibre wall hangings which each featured a different haiku written in Northeast Scots by Shane Strachan. These were hand-embroidered on tulle with a tambour needle and sewn into each woven piece inspired by the words. These tactile pieces were produced alongside workshops I ran with service-users of Rape Crisis Grampian, sharing craft skills which I utilising as a way to wellbeing following my own assault.
The finished pieces were displayed across Rosemount in independent shops: A Yarn Tale, Almondine, Foodstory, Cult of Coffee, Wool for Ewe, Bonnymuir Green Community Trust and Rosemount Community Centre.
The final wall hangings were due to be part of an exhibition where each piece would be auctioned off, but during lockdown were part of a virtual showcase, where they were sold and raised £1,050 to support the vital services of Rape Crisis Grampian.
