Stitched drawings is a uniquely affecting and compassionate work of artist and occupational therapist Georgie Meadows, who encourages us to rethink the way we regard our older population.

Using a domestic sewing machine, she translates delicate line drawings into tender and tactile stitched portraits of people she knows or has worked with.

The exhibition opened last weekend in The Beaney’s Front Room Gallery, and will be open to visitors (absolutely free!) until Sunday 27 November.
