Georgie Meadows: Stitched Drawings

Georgie Meadows: Stitched Drawings is a Wellcome Collection touring exhibition. It brings together 24 pieces of textile art that explore the personal experience of aging and dementia.

Meadows is an artist and occupational therapist based in Monmouth. She crafts uniquely affecting and compassionate portraits, translating line drawing of people she knows or has cared for into stitched works.

Meadows creates delicate pieces by using a domestic sewing machine to sew through two pieces of cloth separated by wadding. Their tangled threads are both a metaphor for the scrambling of neural connections during degenerative illness and a tender and tactile form of portraiture.

Admission to the exhibition is included in general admission to Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum. It’s best to book tickets online in advance as visitor numbers are limited.
