Forget Me Not

‘Forget me Not’

Antique mourning handkerchief, hand embroidery

Part of Emotional Repair exhibition at Gawthorpe Hall, 28th March – 24th June 2018.

It is healing to preserve and remember the names of those loved and lost. This stitched memorial is a work in progress with names gathered from members of the public, friends and family. I am continuing to gather names, particularly those who died young. This work is inspired by stitched memorial samplers from the collection. If you would like to add your contribution, please leave some details on the form below.  Please give initials or first name / initial only and either a date or age. I will be stitching more names onto the cloth during my Meet the Artist events and after the exhibition before it goes to another exhibition in 2019.
