Sew Near Sew Far

30 September - 14 October 2017

Sew Near - Sew Far, a land art commission created by textile artist Lynn Setterington and over one hundred local people, was displayed along the Brontë Way, West Yorkshire, during the autumn of 2017.
Sew Near - Sew Far, a collaboration between celebrated textile artist Lynn Setterington and the Brontë Parsonage Museum, saw a large-scale textile artwork at three sites on the Brontë Way; each one celebrating the famous signatures of the literary sisters. The project was a collaboration with Meeting Point 2 and was accompanied by a series of community workshops.
Artist Lynn Setterington said: “Signatures are an important marker of identity and the Brontë sisters famously used pseudonyms at their time of writing to disguise the fact they were women.
