Inspired by the patterns, structures and shapes found in the autumn leaves, Woolnough’s embroideries represent both the robust beauty and elegant fragility of life. In March 2017 textile artist Meredith Woolnough was the Glasshouse Artist in Residence. Her 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, like preserved specimens.
