BBC Bladderwrack

(film coming soon/16mm/2018)

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 county-file 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.
