Artisans in the Gardens – Meredith Woolnough

Every year the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney showcases the works of some very talented arts and craft folk, and a few weeks ago I spent a lazy sunny Sunday exploring the gems on display. There are always a few standouts, and one of my absolute favourites this year was the incredible sculpted embroidery of Meredith Woolnough.

Each piece is intricately embroidered and sculpted to seemingly float in their frames. Her designs are inspired by nature and the delicate frameworks of leaf skeletons and coral, filigree and lace patterns. I could have spent hours gazing at her works if it wasn’t for the crowds jostling for space in the tiny rooms at the Lion’s Gate Lodge.

Check out Meredith’s website and blog to see more of her stunning embroidery.
