Crumbs from The Word Table - Long Sutton Library

After our morning sessions with the public in Long Sutton Library, Phiona Richards and I moved to the foyer of the library to continue working on the artist residency element of our project. 

The arrival of collaged dolls houses, strange stands and printed birds did cause some curiosity and prompted many conversations.

After each Transported day most of the artefacts 

made there way back to my studio

and at one time I had all three word tables in my dining room

which was a bit of a tight squeeze as it's not a large room. 

 As the weeks progressed it has been satisfying to see the pieces taking shape.

On my first day at University I arrived wearing a floral dress when everyone else in the room was wearing jeans so it seems perfectly in keeping that I am captured drilling holes for the book shelves whilst wear a tea gown!

Phiona and I have been on such an intriguing and interesting journey 

and you can see more images of that journey by following the link

Thank also to the marvellous '' for allowing me to use some of their images of the project.

Transported is a strategic, community-focused programme which aims to get more people in Boston Borough and South Holland enjoying and participating in arts activities, funded by Creative People and Places from Arts Council England.  For more information visit
