Leith Folk & Lore
Based on a set of local folktales from the area, Leith Folk & Lore is a celebration and showcase of Leith’s vibrant history and culture from both past and present.
During her time as artist residence at Out of the Blueprint, Morvern has been researching and exploring the folklore and mythology of the local Leith area. A born and bred Leither, Morvern grew up on Scottish folktales; her imagination populated by selkies, fairies and witches. Now, Morvern continues to explore these themes as an illustrator and storyteller, and introduces a set of Leith folktales in her solo exhibition.
