Lorina’s Legacy Exhibition…number one

Both groups visited the first of our series of summer exhibitions of their work today at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum near Dereham, Norfolk. The work is displayed next to part of the sampler that Lorina herself made. This is a source of pride for us to be linked with our original inspiration.

The lighting in the room is kept deliberately dark to protect the sampler from fading though exposure to light. This image catches the women’s work with the reflection of a backlit display of the whole sampler.

We had a fantastic visit, with a chance to see what workhouse life was like and imagine what Lorina’s experience might have been and the opportunity to wander at will and explore what else the museum and farm have to offer. Our thanks go to Rachel Duffield and the other museum staff for such a warm welcome and our guided tour.
