Part 1: Wigtown Book Festival 2012
Joanne has completed the first part of her residency at Wigtown Book Festival. Joanne brought her public engagement project 'Spinning A Yarn' to the Festival and used locally harvested plants, such as red-hot-poker, montbretia and New Zealand Flax to make a series of ‘yarns’ incorporating your stories and experiences at the festival. Visitors were able to join in the fun as Joanne ‘yarn spinning’ while out and about exploring the festival venues, cafes and outdoor spaces. Her studio at the WBF had a changing display of yarns as they grow and the festival story is spun.
