Events at this Venue


The uniquely affecting and compassionate work of artist and occupational therapist Georgie Meadows 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.

A Welcome Collection partnership. Supported by The Canterbury Auction Galleries.
