Medicine Spoon Memorial

“The Medicine Spoon  Memorial …. is a creative and collaborative art memorial. It intends to honour and acknowledge women who were persecuted as witches during the witch hunts in the United Kingdom.”

My contribution to the memorial is dedicated to Barbara Patersone. Hand embroidered in my favourite red thread.

“Caren Thompson the curator of The Medicine Spoon Memorial has committed to a year long inner journey exploring the inherited trauma of the Burning Times. Where millions of women throughout Europe where persecuted, tortured and killed for being named as a witch. The journey is a collaborative one with a group of brave and amazing women. They are named the The Silver Spoons Collective. This group is being guided and supported by Cali White ancestral healer and creator of The Burning Times workshops which Caren attended back in 2019. 

The Silver Spoons Collective are holding an intention throughout the year and have been invited by Cali to create a piece of work which will be shown in a touring exhibition around the U.K. in 2022. ”
