An exploration of madness, material, and the life of Lorina Bulwer — a needleworker incarcerated in the "Female Lunatic Ward" of Great Yarmouth Workhouse for over 20 years. From 1893 to 1912, Bulwer made thunderous embroideries that scorn and rage and gossip about life in the town and workhouse.
This pamphlet marks the first of the kitwijk series from red herring press, focusing on overlooked, and wilfully ignored, histories in Great Yarmouth.
Designed, edited, typeset in Great Yarmouth, in March 2022.
