Join us for the opportunity to meet renowned whaling artist, printmaker and handmade book-maker Caroline Hack from the 2 - 4 September.
We’re delighted to welcome Caroline, whose textile work will be on display in our Scottish Whaling Gallery from 2 September - 29 November, as part of our Scotland’s Year of Stories 2022 project, “Arctic Ventures: Forgotten Stories of Scotland’s Whaling”. Caroline’s interest in the history of British Arctic whaling has taken her around the world, visiting whaling related sites, museums and collections to gather source material. For The Scottish Fisheries Museum, Caroline will help to bring aspects of the Scottish Whaling story to life through her textile art and handmade books, echoing the crafts and logs undertaken on long whaling voyages in the past.
Caroline will be available to meet and chat to throughout the weekend in the Scottish Whaling Gallery. Come along to learn more about her inspiration and artistic process.
