Viewing single post of blog Ness of Brodgar Artist’s Residency 2023

After last year’s cancelled dig, we are all very glad to be back. However, things are strictly limited in order to comply with Covid rules. There is only a small team on site working in a much reduced area of the trenches. Visitors are able to watch the work in progress but there are no guided tours. So human activity is quieter and the birds are noisier.

The weather was grey with occasional showers but work continued throughout the day in Trench J, with a visiting Oyster Catcher during the tea breaks.

Tomorrow I will try and record the Oyster Catcher’s calls to go with my drawing, and maybe do some reflective writing about this year’s changes.

If anyone is in Orkney and planning to come to the site, please visit the Ness of Brodgar website for details.

Money is obviously tight for everyone this year but if you would like to support my residency and the dig you can buy prints (£25) and books (£10) through my website at karenwallis.co.uk
