A Good Drying Day:
A Family History in Tea Towels

This project grew out of the experience of being separated from family during 2020/21. A set of designs, created and printed onto Tea Towels, traces one Northern Ireland family's history from 1903 to 1987.


Each towel features a family photo and the surrounding decorative pattern or landscape is related in some way to the people, the place or time in which the photo was taken.

 The installation of 30 towels will be hung on washing lines and exhibited at Braid Arts Centre, Ballymena, Northern Ireland from June-September 2022
