Briefed with the task of creating a textile design for the museum, I delved into researching Amersham’s history through museum visits and the fantastic website. I was especially interested in the local stories online archive, getting to know people from Amersham's past.

I wanted to use drawing to bring to light these stories that you couldn't see in the museum. 

My textile design is a collection of these characters from Amersham's past. Some are imagined from stories in the archives, some from the wonderful collection of photographs by George Ward. 

This exhibition is a body of work inspired by my research at the Amersham Museum.
