Sew Near – Sew Far

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 to produce new artworks inspired by  their collections. The stitch-based artworks form part of Brontë200, a five-year programme celebrating the bicentenaries of the births of the Brontës.

Sew Near – Sew Far celebrates the famous signatures of the Brontë sisters. Local people became part of the work when they added their own sewn signatures during a series of workshops . The work was installed with the help of local organisation fields of vision.

A film documenting the collaboration is on the Bronte Museum website under contemporary art.
