A Good Drying Day:
A Family History in Tea Towels

 A set of 37 digitally printed and hand embroidered  Tea Towels traces the story of one Northern Irish family from 1900- 1990.

The decorative pattern surrounding each family photo was designed to tell a little more about the story of either the people, the place or time in which the photo was taken.

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


My mother Margaret centre and members of the McKay family in their garden, Whitehill Road, Carnlough,  July 1957. The hand  drawn landscape is the view from the garden and the rambling roses used to grow over a side gate.

Featuring Robert, Elsie, Jean and Georgina McKay
