Rachel Duffield from Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum came to visit with a replica of one of Lorina’s samplers so that we could have a look at it close up and handle it. Seeing the replica gives a real sense of the scale of Lorina’s work and the time and effort it took to make.
Rachel talked to us about what life would have been like in the workhouse.
We put our work alongside to compare. It felt special to see our work with the work that inspired us.
More work is reaching completion. We will have some beautiful and expressive pieces for the exhibitions.
