Jemima Hall is an artist, forager and educator of ancestral skills based in Scotland where she provides her foraging and Wild Craft workshops. She encourages people of all ages to reconnect to their natural surroundings through art, craft and play whilst being educated on local plants, wild foods and elements of bushcraft.
 

Within her art practice Jemima enters Scotland’s remotest landscapes to study the ethnobotanical uses of the natural materials present. She explores natural building techniques through experimental and experiential architecture. 

She is currently working with seaweeds because of their changing textures and their incandescent and translucent qualities. Jemima's work exists through sculpture, visual poetry and performative art. Drawing and writing equally play an important role in her art practice.

 

In developing her art practice Jemima has undertaken several self-funded expeditions to Scotland’s remote landscapes. In March 2023 Jemima returned from the uninhabited Shiant Isles where she had spent thirty-three days of winter in solitude. In March 2022, the year prior, Jemima spent twenty-six days in solitude on the remote island of Gometra. Jemima has spent extended periods of time on the Isle of Lewis and Harris, the remote island of Mingulay, the Isle of Skye, and is currently based on the Isle of Mull.

It is in a depth of presence with the natural landscapes and seascapes, that she experiences their natural materials through all of their differing forms, studying their colours, textures and strengths through all of her senses. By living within these landscapes she learns about ourselves as humans, about tradition, ingenuity and survival.
