Jillian Morris ‘Trade Routes’ and ‘Links’

‘Trade Routes’ explores my towns local links to the slave trade, and the ‘everyday’ luxuries we enjoy – tea, coffee, sugar, chocolate etc plus my favourite dyestuff – Indigo, and the locally produced goods that would have been traded. 

‘Links’ is a knitted neckpiece [sorry no image] inspired by african ceremonial pieces, but in similar style to an Elizabethan ruff. This piece brings together my thoughts, family ties and the influence of where I live and work, with my connections to Africa, through family, church and our fairtrade business.
