UPON REFLECTION — Knitting & Stitching Show
Alexandra Palace, London, 10th to 13th October 2019
HCC, Harrogate, 28th November to 1st December 2019
To celebrate 21 years of ‘98 Lace,’ each lace-artist has chosen a previous piece of work upon which to reflect, gaining inspiration for a new piece. This exhibition shows the old and new pieces together. The whole process, from inspiration, through planning, design development and making, has taken two to three years. A truly slow craft!
Inspiration was taken from a wide variety of sources, from the tranquillity of a rural religious landscape to the shackles of the slave trade, from a statuesque cemetery angel to rusty old machinery, from delicate antique lace to ferocious seasonal winds. It’s all here!
