Reimagine Resident: EmbroideriesLouise Page embarked on their residency project with an idea for a story based around an iPod full of audiobooks of Jane Austen's novels. The finished result is a stunning collection of embroideries inspired by the House, which illustrate a mini comic book telling a weird and wonderful story...
We are delighted to share Louise’s embroideries and their mini comic – both on display in the House itself and here online!
For their project, Louise has used embroidery and narration to tell a story about grief, disability, and getting lost in Jane Austen. “The Leap” is a mini comic, illustrated using embroidery . Read it here
We think the embroideries also stand alone as a beautiful testament to the House and to Jane Austen’s legacy.
