A pen, paper and 12 consecutive days at John O'Groats Mill.

About this project

In May 2018 I spent 12 consecutive days drawing in John O’Groats Mill.
The Mill had been in the same family since 1750.  The current building dates from 1901. The last corn was milled in 2001 by Magnus Houston.

Inspired by the large (door size) now rusty sieves, I designed a chiffon scarf which incorporated 27 of my 62 pen and ink drawings.

Thanks to Rognvald Brown and Sina Houston for access to the Mill.
