Catriona Macdonald Wave Waulking: video footage and still photographs

We commissioned JJ Jamieson to come along to one of our fulling days and film the movement of cloth underwater.

We later contributed this footage to Catriona Macdonald for use in  the film featured in her performance Wave Waulking which premiered on 12 July 2023 at An Lanntair, Stornoway.
