Using the architecture of St Margaret and St Columba as a starting point, and inspired by the Romanian Orthodox community who worship at the church as well as the strong sense of fellowship and community it fosters, Hannah Whittaker has produced an installation which fits inside the existing parquet flooring. The individually made wooden tiles, have been designed and prepared by Hannah, and then customised by members of the congregation and wider community during a series of workshops. While each tile is different, their coordination in a wider pattern symbolises a unity which permits difference.
