Dorothy Andrew - Hares & Bulrush

Dorothy has lived in Pirton since 1990 and remembers she was made to feel very welcome when she arrived.

Dorothy was nominated to design and embroider the names of the contributors to the Millennium Screen Project and completed the major part of this work.

Dorothy's Comments:

“I met Margaret Granger in the Churchyard one day with a friend (Jenny Fisher) and we were both invited to the first meeting of the Pirton Millennium Screen Project.

I chose a subject which represents a natural part of the countryside in which we live. There are many hares to be seen in the fields near Wood Lane and Highdown. The original design was taken from a book belonging to my daughter. This design was photocopied and transferred to graph paper and then to the canvas. This was only the second canvas of the Project to be completed.“
