I had some fun, handwriting a letter of introduction to Saara and her family who I am planning to meet up with whilst in Tampere. I wrote the letter in Finnish, by using an online translator. It was an interesting exercise, I had to re-write some sentences and words that became lost in translation. I had also forgotten how long it takes to write a letter by hand. As well as the letter, I included some drawings by Naoise.

Saara is an artist based in Tampere who will be visiting the UK with her family in October to take part  in a research residency at Islington Mill, Salford, organised and supported by Nicola Smith’s We Are Resident project.
