2020 marks 400 years since Pilgrims from Nottinghamshire set sail on the Mayflower for America. Mayflower 400 artist Rachel Carter has been tracing her Nottinghamshire ancestry while working on a new sculpture inspired by the Mayflower story. She has explored this idea in recent adventures, crossing the Atlantic by boat and in artist residencies at Harvard’s Peabody Museum & the Pilgrim Monument and Museum in Provincetown USA. 

Rachel is working with groups in Nottinghamshire to explore ancestry and knotting, to create a touring exhibition for Nottinghamshire Libraries linked to her family history, the Mayflower story and her own work.
