Barrow’s Salty Yarns was a community heritage project that focused on the tales of the sea around Barrow-in-Furness. Located on Roa Island, Piel Island and Rampside, I was commissioned to run workshops and create a film in response. The Roa Island coastline is rich in seaweed and for this project I developed16mm film in a mixture of seaweed, washing soda and vitamin C. The project was filmed by BBC Countryfile which partly inspired the film created. To view the BBC broadcast click here.
Salty Yarns was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of their pilot microgrant scheme
