Taking inspiration from the National Library of Scotland's exhibition Petticoats and Pinnacles: Scotland's pioneering mountain women, survivors explored artefacts and themes through creative writing, visual arts, and sound & moving image workshops. Here you can view a range of ways that they creatively responded.
In our final two workshops, participants were joined by Ros Fraser from the Sound and Moving Image Archive. These sessions culminated in the creation of mini-animations, made in the analogue style using postcards from the exhibition.

Creative Writing and Visual Art
Our first four workshops approached the exhibition through writing and visual art. Participants enjoyed watercolour painting and made their own sketchbooks with Juliana Capes; they played with pattern and collage with Katharine Aarrestad; and wrote poetry and prose with Eloise Birtwhistle.
