Research group trip to the Lorina Bulwer archive at Norwich Castle Museum. All images show work produced by Lorina Bulwer, courtesy Norwich Castle Museum. This visit was organised in collaboration with Daniella Valz Gen. 
We held a group visit and discussion to Norwich Castle Museum archive, where we saw textiles created by Lorina Bulwer during her incarceration, and other therapeutic textiles selected by Ruth Battersby Tooke. Many thanks to Norwich Castle Museum and Ruth Battersby Tooke for facilitating the visit. More information on Lorina Bulwer, her work and life, can be found here, including transcripts of her embroidered texts.
