Description


Join us for a tour of the 3rd Tamworth Textile Triennial Open House Exhibition with featured artist Meredith Woolnough. Tamworth Textile Triennial celebrates the open-ended nature of textile practice today. The participant artists are all linked with things outside of themselves and their studios. Many celebrate the sense of belonging that comes from working with other artists; while others take on wide-ranging issues, such as the landscape and the environment, and the artist's place in a world beset by environmental, social and cultural upheaval.

Meredith's artwork will change the way you think about embroidery and textiles by using a fascinating technique called Sculptural Embroidery which is created by turning the humble sewing machine into a creative workhorse.

Meredith is an internationally acclaimed, award winning artist from Newcastle, Australia. Her work is held in public, private and corporate collections worldwide.

Meredith Woolnough's elegant embroidered traceries capture the delicate beauty of nature in knotted embroidery threads. Through a delicate system of tiny stitches she creates intricate and complex openwork compositions that are then carefully pinned in shadowboxes, just like preserved specimens.

The work maps the frameworks of the various veining systems found in nature to create work that explores the balance, harmony and connectivity of life on Earth. Inspired by the patterns, structures and shapes found in plants, coral, cells and shells Meredith's embroideries represent both the robust beauty and elegant fragility of life.

You may also be interested in joing Meredith for a 2 day workshop on Saturday afternoon from 12.30pm - 4.30pm and Sunday 20th January from 9.30am - 4.30pm. To book go to Eventbrite-workshop-with-Meredith-Woolnough
