The Hare Wife is based on English folk tales about witches, and was a wonderful excuse to research seasonal foraging in the UK. I may have done some unnecessary reading on historical fishing in specific regions. Although little of this appears in the text, it gave me a jumping off point for the object frames. Displaying the material culture helped me further the eclectic, homey feeling I was going for with the project.
