The Peat Project in Shetland

Shetland's peat covers the landscape. A view of the land and the sea behind it.

The Peat Project that GlobalYell has been running has nearly ended.

Over the past few months Kate has been working with the community in Yell and in the local school in Cullivoe to explore peat through creative writing, craft and art, and textile design. The project has been a lot of fun to watch as it has developed and the final booklet is on its way for proofing. 

To see what the project did have a look at this pdf. We hope you enjoy reading the stories and poems, and looking at the pictures and designs. Thank you to all who enthusiastically took part in the project, and to the Cullivoe School and Kate for running the project.
