“There is little documentation of this community project, though the legacy artworks are still on display and used daily. I met with members of the St. Canice community for a couple of hours four mornings a week 2005-8 — during this time I unpicked old clothes for use in the project, taught knitting, we shared stories and our love of colour. The installation was a concerted community effort made over a couple of weeks in 2009.” Rosemary
