Drawings and Impressions in the Dining Parlour and Austen Family Room

Judy Dibiase visited to house to draw on Sunday the 7th feb.

I am interested in how objects and places hold memories and was recording visitors responses to the exhibits and how the house evoked their own memories. There were often comments such as " My gran had one...... I can remember." The work I produce starts with drawings and rubbings and collecting marks. I tend to record the small things.

I started drawing in two rooms and intend to explore all rooms in this way taking impressions and drawings and collecting marks and rubbings from outside the house.
