Sew Near – Sew Far

         

The new collaboration Sew Near – Sew Far  with the Bronte Parsonage Museum in Haworth sees a major new art installation on the moors close to the Bronte waterfalls from 1st -14th October. #sewnearsewfar

Sew Near – Sew Far celebrates the famous signatures of the Brontë sisters and local people are being given the chance to add their own signature in a series of workshops with the artist. The installation itself will be a joint effort with the award winning www.fieldsofvision.org

The artworks form part of Brontë200, a five-year programme celebrating the bicentenaries of the births of four of the Brontës. Sew Near – Sew Far is part of Meeting Point2, a year-long project led by contemporary art agency Arts&Heritage that sees artists partner with museums in Yorkshire, the North West and the North East to produce new artworks inspired by the museums and their collections. A film documenting the collaboration is on the Bronte Museum website under contemporary art.
