Jessica is a maker creating jewellery and homeware as part of her sustainable practise.

Watch Jessica’s video to find more about their In:Site commission and read an extract from the blog below.

Jessica created unique pilgrim badges inspired by the tokens made and given to religious pilgrims in the 15th and 16th century to sew onto their clothing. Being particularly interested in the idea of journeys, Jessica spent most of the day walking around the Cathedral square searching for interesting places to cast her badges.

The finished pieces were sewn onto the fabric and displayed on a tree in the square.
